“I haven’t seen this item in the news yet, but BMF has it on very good authority that Rick Slate got the ax this weekend.”
Slate was hired in 2003 to be team’s Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Last spring, for the first time in years, the team did away with Slate’s notorious football-style, pre-camp performance test for players reporting to camp.
