BY foxsports • February 23, 2010

The men's head coach for the U.S. Ski Team has left the Olympics and gone home to Utah for the birth of his second child.

U.S. Ski Team spokesman Doug Haney says coach Sasha Rearick departed after the last U.S. competitor raced in the men's giant slalom Tuesday.

Haney says Rearick will try to get back to Whistler in time for the last men's Alpine event, Saturday's slalom.
