CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (WTVD) -- The Carolina Panthers have announced that Danny Morrison, who has served as team president since 2009, has resigned from that position, the team said in a news release Thursday.

Morrison came to the Panthers from Texas Christian University and before that served as commissioner of the Southern Conference and director of athletics 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 in the news release. "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."
