Dave Gettleman fired as Carolina Panthers General Manager, per reports

Wait, what?!

Well, this is certainly something.

According to, Dave Gettleman has been relieved of his duties as General Manager.

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson had this to say about the decision:

After much thought and a long evaluation of our football operations, I have decided to relieve Dave Gettleman of his duties as general manager,” Richardson said. “I want to thank Dave for the role he played in our success over the past four seasons. While the timing of this decision is not ideal, a change is needed.

There is currently no word on who Richardson is eyeing as a replacement for Gettleman.

The randomness of this breaking story means there has to be something going on inside The Vault that we’re not fully aware of yet, but surely more information will come out soon as to why Richardson has made this decision.

Stay tuned to CSR as we will provide updates to the story as they become available.
