No, Miami Dolphins athletic trainer Kevin O’Neil was implicated in Ted Wells investigation, and as a result has lost is position with the Dolphins.
- In a bit of front office free agency, the Dolphins have decided to fill the slot with Steelers assistant athletic trainer Ryan Grove.
Grove is a Pittsburgh native with both and M.A. and B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh. He first served as a training intern the early 1990’s, before joining the staff full time in 1999. In between, he served as the athletic trainer for the movie Jerry Maguire.
John Norwig Stays Put
Grove’s departure creates a vacancy on the Steelers training staff, but head athletic trainer John Norgwig is staying put.
Norwig has headed the Steelers training department since being hired by Bill Cowher in 1992, and in that capacity Norwig is the only Steelers staffer mentioned by name in Cowher’s fairwell press conference.
