USOC wants full investigation before deciding CEO's future

Posted: Updated:
PYEONCHANG, SOUTH KOREA (AP) -

Leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee say they have no plans to part ways with CEO Scott Blackmun and will wait for results from an independent investigation into the federation's handling of sex-abuse complaints from gymnasts before making any major moves.
  
Chairman Larry Probst used the USOC's traditional pre-Olympics news conference Friday to apologize to the hundreds of gymnasts abused by Larry Nassar, who served as a doctor for the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team.
  
Testimony from more than 150 gymnasts has sparked several calls for Blackmun's resignation.
  
Probst says he felt Blackmun "did the right things at the right time" regarding sex-abuse complaints he knew about.
  
Probst also says the USOC is conducting a review that could result in changing the way it oversees national governing bodies, such as USA Gymnastics.
