This Just In ...

Moments ago, received the U.S. Olympic Committee's press release regarding the resignation of CEO Jim Scherr. The Associated Press report seems to be the first out of the gate (checking other sources), but no word on what Scherr is doing next.

"Everything we have is included in the press release," said the U.S.O.C. media relations office, when I asked whether Scherr's next move is known.

I'm a personal fan of Scherr -- he was the director at USA Wrestling when I interned there via U.S. Olympic Training Center in 1995. Will certainly miss tracking his U.S.O.C. progress, and it will be interesting to see what is next for him. My gut is that that he will remain in the Olympic Family in some way.

The U.S.O.C. also announced interim CEO Stephanie Streeter.

Will post updates, and stories from that internship experience, as things unfold.
