Panthers assistant coach Fuller resigns after investigation

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers have announced that defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller resigned following an investigation into complaints of inappropriate conduct.

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.”

The 39-year-old Fuller joined the Panthers in 2013 as a coaching assistant after playing in the NFL.

He took over the secondary before the 2017 season.

The team has not yet named a replacement.

The move comes with Panthers owner Jerry Richardson still under investigation by the NFL for sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace.
