Barwick set to leave post as FA chief executive

Brian Barwick is set to leave his position as chief executive of England's Football Association.
The FA would not immediately comment upon the move, which was reported Wednesday while England was playing the Czech Republic in a friendly at Wembley Stadium.
Barwick, who played a major role in the appointment of coach Fabio Capello in January, has been in his post for three and a half years.
The Times of London reported on its Web site that Barwick's relationship with FA chairman David Triesman had faltered.
Barwick was appointed in November 2004, three months after a sex scandal forced out his predecessor, Mark Palios. He quit his job in television as controller of ITV Sport to take up the position the following January.
Barwick had been employed by ITV, Britain's main commercial non-subscription broadcaster, since February 1998, where he had helped secure coverage of the Champions League and 2003 Rugby World Cup.
Before that, he was at the British Broadcasting Corp. for 18 years, where he held several key roles involving football, including directing the 1990 and '94 World Cup coverage. He was also the editor of long-running football show "Match of the Day" and a producer of "Football Focus."
