COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- The head of marketing for the U.S. Olympic Committee has resigned to take a job with a nonprofit sports marketing group.
Dave Ogrean resigned Wednesday and was appointed president and chief executive officer of Colorado Springs Sports Corp., which is working to bring sports organizations and events to Colorado Springs. He will switch jobs May 1.
Ogrean is the second person in less than a year to resign as the USOC's deputy executive director in charge of marketing.
His predecessor, John Krimsky, was one of three key executives who quit last year in the wake of a bribery scandal in Salt Lake City that stained the Olympic image.
Ogrean joined the USOC last summer after six years as executive director of USA Hockey. He has helped bring in millions of dollars in sponsorships, signing 19 sponsorship partners in the past 10 months.
