USA Gymnastic Board members step downThree  top leaders on USA Gymnastics’ board of directors have stepped down as the sentencing hearing for former team doctor Larry Nassar continues in Michigan.

Chairman Paul Parilla, Vice Chairman Jay Binder and Treasurer Bitsy Kelley all resigned Sunday, according to a release from USA Gymnastics. The organization has faced widespread criticism from current and former gymnasts over how it handled the accusations of abuse against Nassar.

Kerry Perry, president and CEO of USA Gymnastics, said in the release that the organization supports the resignations.

“We support their decisions to resign at this time,” Perry said. “We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization.”
