Bills coaches want to change training staff; front office might not agree - BN Blitz

"Key members of the staff have told me they want to update the training staff by replacing long-time head athletic trainer Bud Carpenter, but the front office is reluctant to support a switch."

Carpenter would be the second 30-year employee to leave the Bills in the last two years. Former equipment manager Dave Hojnowski was let go a year ago and sued the Bills for age discrimination. The Bills' history of injuries and slow recoveries could force the front office's hand if they are indeed blocking Doug Marrone from making a change.
