    Detroit Lions fire head athletic trainer Dave Granito

    The Detroit Lions made a rare in-season move to their training staff Friday, firing head athletic trainer Dave Granito.

    First-year Lions coach Dan Campbell confirmed the move after Friday’s preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills.

    Campbell said the decision to fire Granito, who was hired in 2019, was not based on one incident.

    “Really it’s just, felt like this was the way that we needed to go,” Campbell said. “I don’t really want to get into detail of it. I can tell you this, our guys were getting proper treatment, it was nothing like that. But it just, it felt like we needed to go another way and communication, some of those things, and so we did make that move.”
