Harry Usher, who was executive vice president of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, and Harvey Schiller, commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, are among four finalists for the United States Olympic Committee's executive director position, a source close to the USOC said Tuesday.
The source said one of the other candidates is Joe Bailey, an executive with the Dallas Cowboys. The name of the fourth finalist was unavailable.
A search committee, chaired by former USOC president William Simon, will submit one of the four names to the USOC's executive board, which is expected to vote on the recommendation at a meeting in Oklahoma City Oct. 23-25.
Baaron B. Pittenger, the USOC's assistant executive director since 1981, has been acting as executive director since Aug. 24, when George D. Miller resigned under pressure. Miller held the position for 2 1/2 years.
