Dolphins hire former Steelers assistant athletic trainer Ryan Grove

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Dolphins replace embattled athletic trainer with longtime Steelers assistant.

Scandal rocked the Miami Dolphins in 2013, with accusations and evidence of bullying swept through the organization.

Few were oblivious, including ex-Dolphins athletic trainer Kevin O'Neill. He was named as part of Ted Wells' investigative report as having not done anything to quell alleged harassment of one of his employees on behalf of a few Dolphins players, including Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey.

O'Neill was let go during the week of the NFL Combine, writes ESPN's James Walker, after the report stated O'Neill did nothing on behalf of the assistant trainer. He was reportedly angry with the situation, and had stormed off during an interview with Wells regarding the matter.

"I am excited to join the Miami Dolphins," Grove said, per Walker. "The organization has a great history and storied tradition, and this is a great opportunity for me." Grove has been with the Steelers for the past 18 seasons, including the last 15 as the team's assistant athletic trainer under head athletic trainer John Norwig. The team also lists Sonia Gysland (assistant athletic trainer) and Geoffrey Zonn (athletic training intern) on its staff.
