Hurney, currently on paid administrative leave, will remain a candidate for the Panthers' vacant general manager opening if he is cleared, the Charlotte Observer reported, citing a source.
The NFL is investigating Hurney under the league's personal conduct policy. He was placed on leave by the team earlier this month after his ex-wife requested a temporary restraining order, claiming her husband harassed her.
A hearing had been scheduled for Friday on the request, but Jeanne Hurley withdrew her complaint after a district judge refused to issue a restraining order, saying there was no evidence of domestic violence.
A league investigator was in Charlotte last week to conduct interviews with those involved in the matter, according to the newspaper report.
The 62-year-old Hurney took over the Panthers' front office on an interim basis after Carolina fired general manager Dave Gettleman in July. Hurney is one of a handful of candidates being considered for the full-time job.
