    Hedge fund manager David Tepper will buy the team from Jerry Richardson, a Wofford College graduate who made sure his team started its summer training at the Spartanburg school.

    Wofford College spokeswoman Laura Corbin told the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg that the school will remain the home of camp through at least next summer. The college's contract with the team runs through 2019.
