WITH NEW POSITION, SCHULTZ HAS MANY RESPONSIBILITIES
Michael Knisley details the challenges facing newly elected
USOC Exec Dir Dick Schultz in the current SPORTING NEWS. Knisley
writes, "[The USOC] at least found someone with experience at
navigating the intricate channels of amateur sports bureaucracy."
Among the challenges: Coalition-building with the national
governing bodies, which "often are at odds with the USOC over
athlete eligibility and funding"; 2) increase USOC's influence
internationally; and, 3) address the "nagging problem" of the
USOC's relationship with the NCAA (THE SPORTING NEWS, 7/3 issue).
