CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WSPA) – The Carolina Panthers have announced that their president, Danny Morrison, has resigned.
Morrison has served as president of the NFL team since 2009, according to the Panthers’ website.
He came from Texas Christian University, and, before that, he served as commissioner of the Southern Conference and athletic director at Wofford College.
“I have enjoyed my time with the Panthers and want to thank Mr. Richardson and everyone involved with the organization,” Morrison said. “This is something I have been thinking about for a while and the timing is right with the start of the business year. We have made great progress in a number of areas, but there are other endeavors, particularly on the college level, that interest me as a final chapter in my career.”
Owner and founder of the Panthers, Jerry Richardson, said, “Danny has made significant contributions to the Panthers over the last seven years and provided guidance to our business operations. He came to us from a college background and learned the NFL quickly. Danny has great integrity and embodies our core values. We thank him for his contributions and wish him the best.”
Morrison joined the Panthers in September of 2009 and was instrumental in a number of areas, the website says.
He was hired after Jerry Richardson abruptly fired his sons, Mark and Jon, when the brothers couldn’t get along at work, Associated Press reports.
Morrison played a major part in the stadium renovations and revamping of the Panthers Training camp at Wofford, the website says.
There is no immediate replacement for Morrison’s position.
