USOC Communications Officer Resigns

By  | 

Darryl Seibel has announced his resignation as chief communications officer at the U.S. Olympic Committee, the fourth key executive to leave the federation since the end of the Beijing Games.

Seibel, 41, announced his departure Tuesday, saying he was leaving June 5 to pursue new professional opportunities.

Seibel has been the USOC's top public-relations person for the past 6½ years and has spent most of the last 20 years in the Olympic movement, with USA Wrestling, USA Hockey, the Colorado Springs Sports Corp. and the USOC.

Seibel joins Jim Scherr, chief of sport performance Steve Roush and chief marketing officer Rick Burton as the fourth key member of the USOC executive team to leave in the past seven months.
