Intervention might be necessary if governing body’s board tries to pull a fast one.

The U.S. Olympic Committee is keeping a close eye on the selection process to replace the recently-fired Doug Logan as CEO of USA Track & Field. Speculation surrounding the promotion of current USATF president and chair Stephanie Hightower to Logan’s former position has the head of the USOC, Tom Blackmun, watching the situation with great interest.

“We’d be likely to ask some questions if a board member becomes CEO,” Blackmun said.

Logan, who was on the job for less than two years, was let go from the organization two weeks ago. USA Track & Field Chief Operating Officer Mike McNees is serving as interim CEO until a permanent replacement is named.
