Ashley chosen new USOC chief of sport performance

Share This Story



The U.S. Olympic Committee has picked Alan Ashley as its new chief of sport performance, part of a restructuring after a six-month internal review by CEO Scott Blackmun.

Ashley, who was the managing director of sport performance, takes over for Mike English, who will move into a position that oversees the Olympic Training Centers and other USOC facilities.

English got the job after Steve Roush was eased out in early 2009 and was the point man when the Americans led the world with 37 medals at the Vancouver Olympics.

The restructuring creates two distinct divisions - sports operations and sport performance.

The USOC is also making subtle changes in its marketing and communications divisions and its travel office.
