USA Gymnastics Board of Directors announces resignation of executive leadership

USA Gymnastics Board of Directors announces resignation of executive leadership

USA Gym Board of Directors executive leadership - Chairman Paul Parilla, Vice Chairman Jay Binder & Treasurer Bitsy Kelley - tendered their resignations, effective January 21, 2018.

The moves indicate continued tumult at the sport's governing body as the sentencing hearing continues for former team doctor Larry Nassar, who has admitted to the sexual assault of minors under his care.

On Monday, USA Gymnastics announced three of its board members had resigned over the scandal.

Nassar has pleaded guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault under the guise of medical treatment.

Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber, Olympians and members of the 2012 Fierce Five women's team that earned gold in London, gave powerful statements in court last week that sharply criticized USA Gymnastics for not protecting them from Nassar.

"On behalf of our clients and all Nassar survivors we also call on United States Congress to immediately schedule hearings and investigate the United States Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University in connection with the Larry Nassar scandal".

Nassar worked as a team doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University.

A delegation of Cabinet members was scheduled to leave Monday, but it was delayed amid the federal government shutdown. The White House released photos showing him in the Oval Office on Saturday and meeting with staff.

Many have clamored for a complete overhaul of the board at USA Gymnastics, but until Monday, only former USA Gymnastics President Steve Penny had lost his job. "There are so many more things going on at the university than just this Nassar thing".

During the past week more than 100 of his victims have made public statements in a MI court during the sentencing phase of his trial.

Morales said that she once viewed Nassar as a friend.

Many victims say they complained years ago but nothing happened. She said USA Gymnastics is "rotting from the inside". "I and so many others would have never, ever met you, Larry".

Geddert and Larry Nassar, the doctor accused of sexually abusing dozens of young gymnasts, worked closely together at Nassar's facility in MI.

In his current trial, Nassar accepted a plea deal that calls for a minimum range of 25 to 40 years in prison.
