Panthers owner Jerry Richardson stepping aside, effective immediately

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson stepping aside, effective immediately

Since the team isn't technically for sale just yet, there's no price on it, and there's no telling how motivated Richardson will or won't be to sell.

"I believe this organization has had a tremendous impact on the Carolinas", said Rivera, who was hired by the Panthers in 2011.

The Panthers announced Friday that the team had launched an internal investigation into Richardson's workplace misconduct.

"In some ways, it's a passing of the torch", said Marc Ganis, a sports consultant and a longtime adviser to Richardson. "But this is not a happy way for it to happen".

Shahid Khan of the Jacksonville Jaguars is the only person of color that's a majority National Football League owner, but he gave $1 million dollars to support Donald Trump's inauguration.


Microsoft owner Steve Ballmer bought the Clippers from Sterling for $2 billion, after Sterling originally paid only $12.5 million for the team back in 1981.

The Panthers are likely to sell for far more. He said he would let the former 49ers quarterback compete with Cam Newton for the starting position. Outside of infusing some extra cash into the operation, it also gave the Dolphins a big PR bump when new ownership took over.

Golden State Warriors All-Star Steph Curry, who grew up in North Carolina, and free agent QB Colin Kaepernick have both expressed interest in purchasing the team after owner, Jerry Richardson, announced his decision to sell.

Diddy even outlined his plans for fans on Instagram. And unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick is interested in joining the effort. This of course has put his chances of buying the team at less than zero because it would have to be approved by the other owners. Almost 20 years ago, San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo pleaded guilty to felony charges stemming from a corruption case involving Edwin Edwards, the former Louisiana governor. Richardson's focus will turn to that sale with Becker in control.

DeBartolo was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
