Panthers Hurney meeting with NFL to answer harassment claims

By STEVE REED

Panthers interim general manager Marty Hurney will meet with an NFL investigator Friday to answer his ex-wife's claims of harassment.

Hurney's attorney Kathleen Lucchesi said Hurney will meet with Lisa Friel, the NFL's special counsel for investigations, in Charlotte. Hurney was placed on a paid administrative leave Wednesday by Carolina while the NFL investigates the matter, even though his ex-wife Jeannie Hurney has withdrawn her complaint.

Hurney is one of four men who have interviewed for the team's full-time general manager position.

His current contract expires June 30.

Lucchesi told The Associated Press in an email that Hurney is "very upset" by the allegations "first, because they are not true, and second, because she made them at a time she and the rest of Charlotte knew Marty was interviewing for the GM job with the Panthers."
