US Gymnastics: Edward Nyman - hired and fired within 2 days

On Monday, April 29, USA Gymnastics (USAG) hired Edward NYMAN as its director of sports medicine and science, a newly created position. But even one day later, on Tuesday, the organization reneged on the hiring citing a “conflict of interest” and nothing else.
"Dr. Nyman's employment will not continue due to a conflict of interest, and we will immediately renew our search to identify a qualified individual to lead our sports medicine and research efforts," a USAG statement reads. It’s the latest misstep in a series of management miscues from the USAG in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.
