Bobsled: Coaches resign from U.S. team

Associated Press

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. Sepp and Francois Plozza have resigned as men's and women's coaches for the U.S. national bobsled team to take the same roles in Switzerland.

It's a move that makes sense for the Plozzas, who live not far from the Swiss team's headquarters in St. Moritz.

U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation CEO Darrin Steele said the Plozzas "did a great job for us over the last few years."

Brian Shimer remains as the men's bobsled head coach. The U.S. national team is looking for a women's bobsled coach, plus a skeleton head coach.
