We noted earlier this week that Panthers G.M. Marty Hurney’s contract runs out in June, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be going anywhere.
ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas reported earlier this week that Hurney has had a new contract offer on the table since last season. The offer still stands.
Hurney’s delay in signing the deal has to do with his buddy coach John Fox’s status. He wanted to see what happened there. Nothing has happened, but Hurney is expected to “get around” to signing his contract soon, if he hasn’t already.
Yasinskas notes that the Panthers don’t announced front office contracts publicly, and last time it took months for Hurney’s last extension to go public.
So whether John Fox is in Carolina in 2011 or not, it appears Hurney will stick around. At the very least, he’ll be getting paid by the team.
