Longtime Panthers Assistant Richard Williamson Retires

Longtime Panthers assistant Richard Williamson has announced his retirement:

Richard Williamson, who was hired as wide receivers coach by the Carolina Panthers even before first head coach Dom Capers was named, is retiring, the team announced Monday. Williamson, 68, joined the Panthers in 1995, the year they started play, stayed on through the entire tenures of Capers and George Seifert and was with the Panthers since John Fox arrived in 2002. He even did a stint as offensive coordinator under Seifert, but Williamson was best known as one of the top wide receiver coaches in the NFL. “I have enjoyed being with the Panthers since the beginning,” Williamson said in a statement released by the team. “It was great to be part of the development of the Panthers from an expansion team to a Super Bowl contender, and I appreciate the way [owner Jerry Richardson] does things. This organization is the class of the NFL and I have tremendous respect for him.”
