Predators' staff changes not limited to coaching staff

Friday, May 24, 2013 at 8:50am

Dan Redmond has been fired as the Nashville Predators head athletic trainer.

The team, which also changed assistant coaches this week, has not officially announced the news.

Redmond has been with the franchise since its inaugural season of 1998-99 and his connection to Nashville coach Barry Trotz dates back to five seasons with the Baltimore Skipjacks of the American Hockey League.

He was honored Nov. 12, 2011 as one of several members of the organization who had been involved in each of the franchise’s first 1,000 games. He also was the 2011 Tennessee Athletic Trainers’ Society professional athletic trainer of the year.

Redmond also spent three years as a trainer with the Cleveland Indians’ developmental clubs.

Associate coach Peter Horachek, who had been with the team since 2003-04 was fired Monday. Phil Housley, fresh off a stint as an assistant with Team USA at the World Championships, was announced Tuesday as Horachek's replacement.
