Tom Reed has been hired to be the Cards' new head athletic trainer.
With longtime head athletic trainer John Omohundro stepping down last week from his job of 41 seasons and moving to a new role of senior advisor of sports medicine, the Cardinals have hired his replacement.
Tom Reed, who has spent the past nine seasons as an assistant athletic trainer with the Atlanta Falcons, was officially named the Cards' head athletic trainer Monday.
Other than Omohundro's move, the team has not announced the status of the rest of the training staff.
Reed, 37, was an assistant athletic trainer at Ohio's Miami University for three seasons before joining the Falcons in 1999. A former football player at the University of Louisville, Reed transferred to the University of Kentucky to finish his degree in exercise science and kinesiology. Reed also served as a rehabilitation coordinator during his time at Kentucky.
Reed was a summer intern for the Falcons in both 1994 and 1995 and won a scholarship from the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society in 1994.
