Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Falcons have indefinitely suspended their relationship with Papa John's in the aftermath of the report that founder John Schnatter made racially insensitive comments during a May conference call. Schnatter has resigned from his position at Papa John's and gave up his seat on University of Louisville's Board of Trustees, which he served on for the last two years.
The committee of independent directors with the fewest business and personal ties to the onetime chairman was formed to "evaluate and take action with respect to all of the company's relationships and arrangements" with Schnatter, according to the statement.
