AUDIO: Panthers writer Bill Voth talks Gettleman firing

July 17, 2017 - 2:00 pm

The Carolina Panthers have fired general manager Dave Gettleman less than two weeks before the opening of training camp. 

Team owner Jerry Richardson said in a statement he made the decision after a long evaluation of the team's football operations.

Richardson also acknowledged the timing is not ideal as the Panthers are scheduled to report to camp on July 26. 

Bill Voth with the Panthers spoke with WFNZ about the possible connection between the firing and contract talks with a couple of the team's star players.

Gettleman had been Carolina's general manager since 2013.
