Former interim leader Scott Blackmun, a Colorado Springs attorney, will be named tomorrow as new CEO of the U.S. Olympic Committee, the Associated Press and Chicago Tribune reported this morning.

Blackmun, 52, served in a number of USOC positions between 1999 and 2002. He was acting CEO from February through November, 2000. He recently was named a finalist along with Chuck Wielgus, the head of USA Swimming.

Blackmun would replace Stephanie Streeter, a former member of the USOC board that unexpectedly ousted popular CEO Jim Scherr last year. The action launched what looked like a series of damaging USOC missteps, leading to the slam-dunk rejection of Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid by the International Olympic Committee.

Larry Probst, chairman of the USOC board, has called a news conference for tomorrow morning in Colorado Springs.

More on this as it develops.
