Scott Fitterer and his wife, Cherish, share two children: a son and a daughter.
Although he prefers to keep a low profile on his family, he prioritizes his time for them and can often be seen spending vacations and memorable moments with his wife and kids.
Born on November 4, 1973, Scott is a native of Seattle, Washington. Being a two-sport athlete, sports were in his DNA from a young age.
Furthermore, the football executive played minor-league baseball for three years with the Toronto Blue Jays.
After injuries riddled his playing career, Scott decided to go to the executive positions, starting as a scout for the New York Giants.
Following that, he had a 2-decade stint with the Seattle Seahawks, assuming scouting and vice president duties.
He was hired as General Manager for the Carolina Panthers in 2021 before getting fired by the Panthers in 2024.
With a long and experienced career in NFL executive positions, seeing where he ends next will be interesting.
Scott Fitterer Wife, Cherish Fitterer
As aforementioned, Scoot Fitterer is married to his wife, Cherish Fitterer.
Although Scott has been in the sporting limelight for nearly 25 years, he keeps details of his private life under wraps.
Some sweet and heart-warming pictures of the couple can be seen online.
They are parents of two beautiful children: Ella and Cole. Scott’s family is an avid sports fan and attends Panthers games frequently.
On top of that, Scott jokingly revealed in an interview that Panther’s co-owner Nicole Tepper sends his wife funny memes about him from time to time.
Furthermore, his kids also show him trendy stuff about him whenever they see one.
He revealed that the memes and trends are fun to follow when the team wins but depressing when the results go the other way.
“Sometimes, my kids will show them to me. Nicole Tepper has sent my wife a couple of memes about me before. So I have seen them. It’s fun, but it comes down to you have to win. So, the memes might look a little different if you’re not winning.”
Overall, it certainly seems Scott has a supportive and united family.
Such a strong family bond is vital to pursuing a career in the cutting-edge world of the NFL.
What’s Next For The GM?
As aforementioned, after a slump in form and a 2-15 win-loss record, the Panthers’ higher-ups decided to part ways with their GM, Scott Fitterer.
“As we move forward with the new direction for our franchise, I have made the decision that Scott will no longer serve as our general manager, I appreciate his efforts and wish the best for him and his family,” owner David Tepper stated in his official briefing.
Fans are focusing with a keen eye on Scott’s next move. Although things went south for him at Carolina, he still boasts an executive resume spanning over 2 decades.
We expect some NFL franchises to compete over his signing in the coming months.
