Washington Football Team has decided to hire Martin Mayhew as their new GM. He comes to Washington after spending time as the San Francisco 49ers Vice President of Player Personnel.

The WFT chose to hire Mayhew over former Carolina Panthers GM Marty Hurney. There was a report that Hurney was close to an agreement with WFT by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport as their GM.

Both Mayhew and Hurney will work with head coach Ron Rivera to make the calls in the front office, according to Rapoport. Before Rivera come to the team, the team had a ‘confused command structure’ under Bruce Allen and owner Daniel Snyder.

Hurney and Rivera previously worked together with the Panthers.
