By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher The Carolina Panthers have gone to a man, who has been previously their GM to be their new interim GM. The Panthers fired GM Dave Gettleman recently. The team has announced that Marty Hurney, who was fired as their GM in 2012 to be their interim GM. He reportedly met with Panthers owner Jerry Richardson on Tuesday to iron out the details to be in this role. He will be introduced to the media as their interim GM on Wednesday at 2 pm EST. “Marty is the perfect person to help us in the interim,” Richardson said in a statement released by the team. “He worked with us for 15 years and understands the culture we have here. He had a lot to do with the core of our team being in place. I’m thankful that he is willing to help us in this transition period.” The belief is that Hurney will serve as their interim GM for this upcoming season. Then, once the season is over, Richardson will determine who will be their next GM whether that will be Hurney or a search is announced to find a GM outside of the organization. “I never lost the connection with the organization,” Hurney said in a statement released by the Panthers. “I’ve gained a lot of perspectives and have looked at things in different ways. I think I can help this team in a lot of areas. I think I’ve grown. And I feel I’m better prepared to come in this time and do a better job than I did over the 12 years I was general manager last time.”
