Sports briefs: U.S. Alpine speed team coach fired
First Published Apr 24 2014 09:27 pm • Last Updated Apr 24 2014 09:27 pm

SKIING • The head coach of the U.S. Alpine speed team, Andreas Evers, was fired Thursday by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, hours after the Austrian was sentenced to four months in prison plus 20 months on probation for money laundering. The team said it had no immediate plans on replacing Evers, who was hired two years ago. Under Evers, the U.S speed team won three medals at major championships — all in super-G — with Park City’s Ted Ligety winning gold at the 2013 world championships in Schladming, Austria, and Andrew Weibrecht and Bode Miller earning silver and bronze, respectively, at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
