The moving and shaking continues at Bank of America Stadium as the team placed interim GM Marty Hurney on paid leave after his ex-wife accused him of harassment.
Jeanne filed for a protective order against Hurney on Friday. Hurney notified the team on Sunday. The Panthers alerted the NFL and an investigation is underway.
Jeanne was not granted the immediate restraining order as District Judge Ronald Chapman decided there was no evidence of immediate danger. He set the hearing for February 16. Although Jeanne informed The Charlotte Observer on Tuesday that she had withdrawn her complaint, the NFL investigation will continue.
Hurney’s troubles come at the end of a tumultuous season for the Panthers off the field. From Cam Newton’s infamous routes statement to owner Jerry Richardson’s decision to sell the team amid workplace misconduct allegations, the Panthers have had their fair share of drama.
The Panthers will begin the 2018 season with a new Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, and possibly a new GM.Tags: Carolina Panthers, harassment, Marty Hurney, paid leave
