U.S. Speedskating to oust executive director in ongoing shakeup

March 15, 2010 |  7:54 am

U.S. Speedskating is expected to announce later Monday that it has fired Executive Director Bob Crowley and replaced him with Brad Olch, the former mayor of Park City, Utah and a member of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Organizing Committee.

The move is part of a general shakeup in the federation that also included the dismissal of high performance director Guy Thibeault and communications director Peri Kinder.

The changes were made by a unanimous vote of the federation's board of directors.
