COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP)

One of the key critics of the U.S. Olympic Committee during its CEO switch has left his job as the leader of USA Triathlon.

The federation announced the departure of executive director Skip Gilbert in a brief news release, offering no explanation.

Gilbert also leads the council of America's national governing bodies, though his future role there was not explained. He did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press.

Gilbert is best known for criticizing the ouster of Jim Scherr as CEO at the USOC. He commissioned a questionnaire among NGB leaders that led to a harsh rebuke of Scherr's successor, Stephanie Streeter.
