America’s track and field governing body is doing battle with its former headman.
Last September, USA Track and Field (USATF) fired its CEO, Doug Logan. The controversial decision forced Logan to sue the organization in a federal court in Indiana court for $1.6 million–the amount remaining on Logan’s contract if he is terminated without cause.
The contract revealed all of the perks and benefits bestowed upon Logan.
Letsrun.com recently posted an article with USATF’s response to Logan’s suit. According the the article, they are filing their own counterclaim. In it, the organization states that they found that Logan committed “serious misconduct”, which gave them cause to terminate him.
Of the strongest allegations are that Logan committed tax evasion. They also state that he committed expense report abuse and that he gave “improper gifts” to a female athlete.
In the final paragraph of the counterclaim, USATF states that Logan called the organization’s president and vice president as “a bunch of clowns” and that he “treated the board indignantly and with insubordination.”
