Panthers Defensive Backs Coach Curtis Fuller Resigns Amid Workplace Conduct Complaints

Panthers coach resigns amid vague texting allegations

Panthers spokesman Steve Drummond released a statement Friday that said "after approaching Coach Fuller with the findings of an investigation into complaints of inappropriate conduct, we accepted his resignation".

This week, Ron Rivera's coaching staff saw another change, with defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller abruptly resigning his post.

The 39-year-old Fuller joined the Panthers in 2013 as a coaching assistant after playing in the NFL. He came to Charlotte after serving as an assistant secondary coach for the Tennessee Titans in 2012. Fuller, a fourth-round draft pick in 2001, played for the Seattle Seahawks, Packers and Panthers in a three-year career.

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has been accused by at least four former team employees of making inappropriate sexual and racial remarks toward them. Richardson announced he was selling the team in December.

This is the first time that the Richardson-led scandal in Carolina has made its way on to the football field. "Fear and intimidation abound in the environment you created". The Panthers are deeply 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. "So, I did what you told me to do". She called the league's investigation into Richardson's conduct "a farce" and criticized Rivera for being "insensitive" and an "enabler".

The Panthers said Friday that the allegations against Fuller are being taken very seriously.

In the wake of the Richardson allegations in December, the team hired Tina Becker as its new chief operating officer. "The team allocated significant resources towards reforming our workplace, restructured executive responsibilities and added a comprehensive training program on harassment and diversity and inclusion issues".
