Source: USOC recommends USA Gymnastics president resign

(AP) -

U.S. Olympic Committee leadership is recommending that USA Gymnastics President Steve Penny resign amid fallout from the federation's handling of a string of sex-abuse cases.

A person familiar with the communications says the USOC board discussed Penny's future at its quarterly meeting.

Penny is a co-defendant in a civil lawsuit filed by 2000 Olympian Jamie Dantzscher, who has accused former volunteer team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse.

USA Gymnastics has denied wrongdoing.
