Panthers DB coach left after internal investigation

Panthers defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller resigned this week, a decision that coach Ron Rivera called “a complicated situation.”

Now, it looks slightly more clear.

According to David Newton of ESPN.com, a team spokesman said they accepted Fuller’s resignation Wednesday after an internal investigation.

“After approaching Coach Fuller with the findings of an investigation into complaints of inappropriate conduct, we accepted his resignation,” Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said. “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.”

Considering their current context, that sounds just as ominous as you think it does. Team owner Jerry Richardson has put the team up for sale after Sports Illustrated revealed allegations of workplace misconduct of both racial and sexual harassment.

The Panthers currently have a pair of assistant position coaches working with their defensive backs.

  1. I don’t know what this guy did and if he’s guilty or not, but I do know that you can’t even tell a woman she looks great anymore.

    It’s insane.

    First, none of the stories of assault, rape, and sexual harassment that have come out were simply because a man said to a woman “You look great.”

    Second, if the outcome of all these stories is that we men have to be more cautious about how we interact with and compliment women, why is that such an “insane” outcome for us? Let’s try an exercise in empathy… would you like more men to walk up to YOU telling you how handsome or sexy you look? I wouldn’t. Can’t blame women for feeling the same way.

    — Yep, totally the same thing.

    If a woman were to walk up to me and tell me how handsome or sexy you look I would view it as a compliment.
