The interim general manager of the Carolina Panthers has been placed on leave after his ex-wife accused him of harassment, according to multiple reports.

His ex-wife, Jeanne Hurney, later dismissed the complaint, according to her attorney.

The NFL continues to investigate the matter. An immediate restraining order was denied by a judge, who said he saw no evidence of domestic violence. The Panthers notified the National Football League that Hurney's ex-wife filed for a protective order Friday. It is unclear if the hearing will go forward. She said in the complaint that her phone, laptop and security system have been hacked and that she changed her locks three times in three days last summer. She also expressed fear that he "may resort to violence" and "my privacy has been violated for the past seven years". She claims Hurney or his friends broke into her home and/or classroom and put post-it notes in one of her books with words such as "victim" or "terrorize".

When Hurney was initially promoted to the general manager position in 2002, the Panthers were coming off a 1-15 season.
