WFT Set to Hire Veteran Front Office Exec Marty Hurney as New GM

Washington is bringing in a voice very familiar with head coach Ron Rivera, as the team is reportedly set to hire veteran executive Marty Hurney as the team’s new General Manager.

The GM role had been filled by Rivera, but now he will have another ally and someone he worked with a lot in his time with the Panthers.

Hurney was back and forth with the Panthers, getting fired not once, but twice, but overall he was with the Panthers for parts of five seasons.

The 65-year-old will work alongside Rivera, who is reportedly still going to have the overall power on the football side for the defending NFC East champions.

Hurney worked on the salary cap in his time with the Panthers, but that role within Washington is already being handled by Rob Rogers.

WFT spoke to a number of other candidates for the position of GM, including former Detroit general manager Martin Mayhew, Tennessee’s vice president of player personnel Ryan Cowden and Washington’s director of pro personnel Eric Stokes.
