USOC "Bans" Graham

Previously the USOC floated an idea of banning coaches. Now they've gone and done it.
The U.S. Olympic Committee banned track coach Trevor Graham from its training centers and training sites Thursday.
What this article doesn't say is where such training centers & sites are, nor does it indicate how this would affect Graham. He won't be accredited as a coach at the 2008 Olympic Trials or Olympic Games, but the lion's share of a track coach's job is done long before the meet comes around anyway. Most likely this is just another PR move which makes it look like the USOC is doing something when in reality all they did was shuffle some paper.
