Panthers fire GM Dave Gettleman

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Carolina won the NFC South and made the playoffs each of his first three seasons, culminating with a trip to Super Bowl 50 in February, 2016.

The Carolina Panthers announced Monday that general manager Dave Gettleman has been relieved of his duties.

The team offered no immediate reason for Gettleman's dismissal. "I want to thank Dave for the role he played in our success over the past four seasons". It's the second major shakeup in Carolina's front office this offseason, as the team fired assistant general manager Brandon Beane in the spring. Richardson also acknowledged the timing is not ideal as the Panthers are scheduled to report to camp on July 26.

The Panthers missed the playoffs last season with a 6-10 record, a year after going 15-1 and reaching Super Bowl L where they ultimately fell, 24-10, to the Denver Broncos.

As ProFootballTalk's Darin Gantt points out, the Panthers now are in contract negotiations with fan favorites Greg Olsen and Thomas Davis, so it's possible Gettleman's history of not being sympathetic to established veterans played into his firing.

Gettleman parted ways with several of Carolina's all-time best players in wide receiver Steve Smith, running back DeAngelo Williams and cornerback Josh Norman.

A team source indicated Gettleman was not interested in giving Olsen a new deal only two years after Olsen received a three-year, $22 million extension, although the feeling inside the organization was that Davis would get at least another year added to his contract before the start of training camp next week.
