INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- USA Track and Field interim CEO Mike McNees has decided to leave the organization after Max Siegel was picked to fill the CEO spot on a permanent basis.
McNees, the chief operating officer, filled the top role for more than 19 months following the ouster of Doug Logan.
USATF conducted two searches for a permanent CEO and came up with Siegel, a former board member who resigned that position to take a paid consultant's job with the federation before becoming CEO.
Siegel's hiring was announced April 23.
McNees says: "The organization is charting a new course, and I'm proud to have done my small part in support of the team as I now re-chart my own."
