Australia's national coach steps down

Australia's national coach steps down

Australia's head swimming coach Alan Thompson stepped down Friday after refusing to work under a restructure administrators said was vital for the sport's future success, officials said.
Swimming Australia said Thompson had accepted a redundancy after rejecting a proposal to separate the two positions he currently holds - as head coach and as general manager for high performance.
"Alan is not prepared to work under this new structure," chief executive Kevin Neil said in a statement.
"Swimming is a sport that prides itself on professionalism, hard work and success, and to continue to maintain and develop those values at all levels, we believe this new structure is the best way forward."
