panthers fire gm Marty hurney
The Carolina Panthers will be looking for a new general manager this offseason, as they announced on Monday they have fired Marty Hurney. This is Hurney's second run-around with the team; he had a ten-year stint from 2002 to 2012, and then returned in 2017 after the team fired Dave Gettleman. The reasoning behind the move? "I think sometimes you just need a restart, a refresh," owner David Tepper explained.
