USA Bobsled and Skeleton's board of directors has decided to fire CEO Darrin Steele, and told athletes of the move in a conference call Tuesday night.

Steele will remain in the job for about another month. USABS' board did not cite a specific reason, other than saying it wanted "a fresh perspective."

The board says John Rosen will assume the role of Interim CEO until a permanent replacement is hired.

Steele oversaw the bobsled and skeleton teams for 12 years, a period where the Americans won nine Olympic medals and 21 medals at the world championships. He also was a two-time bobsled Olympian for the U.S.

Steele says he will work with the board to aid the transition.
