Jon and Mark Richardson resign from Panthers
Posted by Mike Florio on September 1, 2009 12:41 PM ET
As it turns out, the trade that brought defensive lineman Louis Leonard to Charlotte is small potatoes in comparison to the other development with the franchise.

The Panthers have announced that Jon Richardson and Mark Richardson abruptly have resigned as the presidents of Panthers Stadium LLC and Panthers Football LLC, respectively.

"Both Mark and Jon made great contributions to the stadium and team that have enabled us to enjoy much success over the last 15 years," said Panthers owner Jerry Richardson regarding his sons.  "At the same time, I am thankful that we have a staff that has been in place for many years and knows our philosophy."

No reason has been given for the resignations.  Both men will remain within the ownership group.

Panthers official says team isn't for sale

As the football-following world tries to figure out what would prompt the two sons of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson to resign their jobs with the organization on the same day, a team official tells Steve Reed of CarolinaGrowl.com that one possible explanation can be disregarded. 

The source tells Reed that the Panthers are "absolutely not moving and are not for sale."

Still, the departure from the day-to-day operations of the two male heirs to owner Jerry Richardson raises real questions regarding the extent to which either or both Jon and Mark Richardson will be involved in the business going forward. 

The departure of Jon Richardson had been expected.  G.M. Marty Hurney told Reed that the decision of Mark Richardson to resign "took me by surprise."

Jon Richardson, a cancer survivor, reportedly was looking for a "lifestyle change."  No reasons have been identified or suggested for Mark Richardson's decision.
