Carolina Panthers defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller has stepped down after an internal probe allegedly uncovered evidence that he engaged in inappropriate behavior with women.

The news is not an isolated incident for the Panthers. In December, owner Jerry Richardson agreed to sell the team when it was revealed that at least four female employees received significant monetary settlements after accusing him of sexual harassment.

‘After approaching Coach Fuller with the findings of an investigation into complaints of inappropriate conduct, we accepted his resignation,’ Panthers spokesperson Steven Drummond told ESPN.
