“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.”
Within the press release, Jerry Richardson thanked Morrison for his “significant contributions” to the team over the last seven years and was highly complimentary. The decision to leave the team might not have been entirely Morrison’s, but at minimum, it’s an amicable parting of ways.
Morrison was more involved on the business side of things than football decisions, so this shouldn’t affect day-to-day operations for Dave Gettleman and his staff.
