Buffalo Sabres coach Ted Nolan is overhauling his staff of assistants.

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.
