Miller appointed USAC athletics director

USA Cycling announced Wednesday that Jim Miller has been appointed to the position of Interim Director of Athletics effective immediately. Miller will remain in the position until a permanent replacement is identified.

Miller's appointment comes following the departure of former Director of Athletics, Pat McDonough, on February 2.

Previously, Miller served as the organization's Endurance Program Manager, overseeing the development of junior, U23 and women endurance athletes in road and track cycling.

"As a successful coach and program director with USA Cycling for the last seven years, I am confident that Jim will provide excellent leadership and direction for our athletic programs," said USA Cycling chief executive officer Steve Johnson. "USA Cycling is also grateful for the service Pat has given to the organization throughout his tenure and we wish him nothing but success in the next phase of his professional career."
