Cal’s Durden, Stanford’s Meehan to coach US Olympic swimmers
LOS ANGELES (AP) — USA Swimming is turning to a pair of veteran collegiate coaches to oversee the Olympic swimming team in 2020.
Dave Durden of California will be in charge of the men's team and Greg Meehan of Stanford will coach the women's in Tokyo, USA Swimming announced Monday.
The U.S. swim team won 16 gold medals and 33 total medals at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, the best showing by the Americans in any sport. Bob Bowman coached the men in Rio and David Marsh guided the women.
IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Bob Bowman, the longtime coach of retired 23-time Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps, has acknowledged and apologized for inappropriate text messages that were sent from his cellphone to former Olympic swimmer Caroline Burckle in 2011.
At the time, Bowman was a coach for the U.S. national team, along with Sean Hutchison, who was also said to be involved in the texting.
Bob Bowman, the longtime head of the wildly successful Major League Baseball Advanced Media venture and former Michigan treasurer, was forced out of his MLB job after years of "inappropriate behavior," according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
WSJ reported Thursday night that Bowman verbally abused a coworker in October, leading to commissioner Rob Manfred's decision to cut Bowman loose.
MLB issued a press release in November announcing Bowman's departure.
