Goalie coach Jim Corsi will not return, and assistant Teppo Numminen's contract will not be renewed, the Sabres announced Wednesday. Two other assistants, Joe Sacco and Jerry Forton, have a choice to stay with the Sabres after being offered jobs within the team's hockey department.
The moves come three days after the Sabres finished in last place. The shake-up doesn't come as a surprise. Nolan inherited the staff in November, after being hired on an interim basis to replace Ron Rolston.
Nolan has since been signed to a three-year contract and was expected to bring in his own staff.
Corsi was the Sabres' longest tenured assistant after completing his 17th season in Buffalo.
