Washington Hires Martin Mayhew as the Team’s New GM

Three days ago the Washington Football Team was set to hire Marty Hurney as the team’s new GM, but Friday made an announcement that Martin Mayhew is the new GM voice of the franchise.

Hurney is still expected to come aboard and help the team, working alongside Mayhew according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Mayhew brings a wealth of experience to Washington, as he was the general manager of the Detroit Lions from 2008 to 2015.

His last position was vice president of player personnel for the 49ers.

Head coach Ron Rivera released a statement Friday morning about the move to bring in Mayhew.

“Martin is a proven General Manager who will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization,” Washington head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement.

“He will be an integral part of running the daily football operations and will allow me the opportunity to focus more on coaching. He impressed both myself and [team owner Dan] Snyder during the interview process and we both believe he will be a tremendous fit here.

“He is a man of high character and integrity and was part of the rich history and tradition of this great franchise as a member of the Super Bowl championship team in 1991.”
