Panthers to Bring in Two External Candidates to Interview for GM Spot

The Panthers will bring in two external candidates to interview for the general manager position that Marty Hurney has held on an interim basis since July, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Houston Texans assistant general manager Jimmy Raye III and Buffalo Bills assistant college scouting director Lake Dawson will meet with the Panthers next week, a team source confirmed Saturday.

Raye and Dawson will satisfy the Rooney Rule, which requires NFL teams to interview at least one minority candidate for the positions of head coach and GM.

Former Panthers scout and ex-Wofford player Ryan Cowden, director of player personnel for the Tennessee Titans, also is expected to interview.

Hurney is considered the front-runner to keep the job full time after returning to the team last summer after owner Jerry Richardson fired Dave Gettleman a week before training camp.
