PANTHERS ANNOUNCE HURNEY NO LONGER PANTHERS GM FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 22, 2012

Carolina Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson announced Monday that General Manager Marty Hurney has been relieved of his duties. Hurney had been general manager of the Panthers since 2002.

“This was an extremely difficult decision,” said Richardson. “Marty made every effort to bring success to the Panthers and took the team to a Super Bowl and two NFC championship games. Unfortunately, we have not enjoyed the success we hoped for in recent years. I have the greatest respect and admiration for Marty and will always appreciate the way he tirelessly served the organization.”

Hurney was general manager when the Panthers went to the 2003 Super Bowl and the NFC championship games in the 2003 and 2005 seasons as well as winning the NFC South Division in 2008.

“I am very fortunate to have been a part of one of the best organizations in the NFL since 1998,” says Hurney. “As General Manager I will always regret not helping us win the Super Bowl or having back-to-back winning seasons. I hope this change starts accomplishing the direction to those goals. I understand this decision by Mr. Richardson and will always have an extremely close relationship with him. I consider him the best owner in the NFL. I am responsible for everybody in coaching, the players, the scouts and everybody in football operations. After six weeks, we are 1-5 coming off a 6-10 season.”
