Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is set to meet with Marty Hurney on Tuesday to discuss Hurney taking over as general manager on an interim basis, a league source told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Hurney is expected to be given the role “if all goes well.”
While nothing is finalized, the plan would reportedly be for Hurney – who was the Panthers’ GM from 2002-12 – to run the team for 2017 while full-time candidates are vetted, adds Pellissero.
The Panthers fired David Gettleman on Monday after four successful years with the team, including a Super Bowl appearance in 2015.
