Richard Williamson (born on April 13, 1941 in Fort Deposit, Alabama) was the wide receivers coach for the Carolina Panthers until he retired on January 18, 2010, and was the only coach to be with the team since the team was founded in 1995.

Williamson and his wife, Norma, have two grown children, a son, Rich, and a daughter, Caroline. The Williamsons live in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Williamson was a wide receiver under legendary Alabama coach Bear Bryant for the 1961 and 1962 seasons. He caught Joe Namath's first touchdown pass at Alabama. Williamson would move over to the coaching staff from 1963–1967, helping the Tide win National Championships for the 1964 and 1965 seasons.
