USOC WHITTLES DOWN LIST FOR NEW EXEC DIRECTOR

     The USOC "will begin interviewing leading candidates for its
executive director opening and might restructure its top two
management positions as part of the process," according to Mike
Dodd of USA TODAY.  The search committee to replace Harvey
Schiller, now President of Turner Sports, is down to a dozen or
so candidates with a possible recommendation by mid-summer.
Among those believed to be on the list:  NCAA Exec Dir Dick
Schultz, Nike Sports Management President Terdema Ussery, USA
Hockey Exec Dir Dave Ogrean and former U.S. Skiing CEO Mike
Jacki.  Interim Exec Dir John Krimsky "also is on the list, but
is expected to stay in his business role as part of the
restructuring.  Krimsky said the committee is considering
recommending 'two pillars of leadership,' one for business and
one for sports administration."  Krimsky:  "I'm most comfortable
with the business pillar."  The committee is recommending the two
positions be equal (USA TODAY, 4/10).
