Panthers fire GM Hurney after 1-5 start


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Marty Hurney was fired as general manager of the Carolina Panthers one day after star quarterback Cam Newton expressed his frustration with a 1-5 start.

The Panthers have the worst record in the NFC in a season that began with big expectations.

The dismissal came hours after Sunday’s 19-14 loss to Dallas.

Hurney, the GM since 2002, took responsibility for the team’s failures.
