Carolina Panthers investigating owner Jerry Richardson for workplace misconduct

The Carolina Panthers are investigating team owner Jerry Richardson.

ESPN’ Jim Trotter first reported that Richardson was being investigated for workplace misconduct.

Minutes later, the Panthers released a statement. In it, they revealed that the franchise is investigating Richardson for workplace misconduct. They have hired an outside law firm to lead the investigation, and overseeing it will be former White House Chief of Staff, and limited owner, Erskine Bowles.

“The entire organization is fully committed to ensuring a safe, comfortable and diverse work environment where all individuals, regardless of sex, race, color, religion, gender, or sexual identity or orientation, are treated fairly and equally,” Panthers spokesperson Steven Drummond said in the statement.

Richardson has been the owner of the Panthers since the NFL awarded a football team to the Carolinas in 1993. He played two seasons in the NFL for the Baltimore Colts in 1959 and 1960.
