USA Gymnastics CEO Forced To Resign
After months of criticism from former Olympians and current members, USA Gymnastics CEO Kerry Perry is being forced to resign.
The Orange County Register first reported the ouster of Perry, whose resignation is expected to be announced Tuesday.
Perry replaced Steve Penny back in December, after Penny resigned in the spring of 2017 in the wake of the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.
Mary Lee Tracy, just recently hired as coach of the women's elite development program, has also been let go by the USAG. Tracy was only on the job for three days. The USAG said Tracy inappropriately contacted one of the hundreds of survivors of sexual abuse by Nassar.
"As we close the day, I'm afraid I can offer nothing but disappointment,'' said U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Sarah Hirshland. "Under the circumstances, we feel that the organization is struggling to manage its obligations effectively and it is time to consider making adjustments in the leadership.''
She had said the USOC would be reaching out to the USAG board over the weekend to discuss changes.
