COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — USA Diving has hired Lee Michaud as its president.

He was an All-American diver at Michigan and spent five years on the U.S. national team, winning multiple national titles.

Michaud said Tuesday that he feels like “I’m coming home.” He added that he’s “committed to fostering a community in which our divers can safely compete at the highest level.”

Michaud spent the last eight years working for Texas-based Daseke Inc., an owner and consolidator of flatbed and specialized transportation companies in North America. He led two of its companies: Smokey Point Distributing and the Schilli Cos.

Dave Gascon, chairman of USA Diving’s board of directors, cited Michaud’s proven leadership, analytical skills and deep understanding of the sport in announcing the hire. Jack Perkins has been the acting president.
