Panthers Interim General Manager Placed on Leave

The Carolina Panthers have placed interim general manager Marty Hurney on paid administrative league following a complaint of harassment by his ex-wife.

The Charlotte Observer is reporting Hurney's ex-wife said she withdrew her complaint. The team had notified the National Football League that Jeanne Hurney had filed a complaint with Mecklenburg District Court and sought a restraining order against Marty Hurney, according to a Charlotte Observer report.

The NFL's investigation into allegations against Hurney comes just months after former owner Jerry Richardson stepped down as the Panthers' owner. She said in the complaint that her phone, laptop and security system have been hacked and that she changed her locks three times in three days last summer. A hearing has been set for February 16.

Jeanne Hurney called the situation "really emotional" and directed questions to her attorney, Jonathan Feit, who didn't respond to The Charlotte Observer's inquiries on Tuesday.

Her complaint alleged that her ex-husband or his associates had recently broken into her home and classroom, according to the paper.

"This is false", Lucchesi said of Jeanne Hurney's earlier allegations, via ESPN.

Jeanne Hurney and Marty Hurney were divorced in January 2014.

The protective order wasn't immediately turned into a restraining order by a local district judge.

Marty Hurney was named by the Panthers as the team's interim general manager after they fired Dave Gettleman in July.

Marty Hurney is considered one of the top candidates for the Panthers' full-time general manager opening and was set to interview with the club last week.
