Change Management of USA Rugby

Bret Costain started this petition to USA Rugby

I believe that we need a strong national governing body for our sport, but the fact of the matter is that collegiate and club rugby is being sold short and it appears we are funding a failing policy of Eagles first, and over-inflated wages for a CEO and national coach.

Now that the USA national team is finished at the Rugby World Cup, I insist that there are sweeping changes at USA Rugby.
1) I insist that we appoint a new Chairman of the Board.
2) I insist we hire a new CEO for half the price of the last one.
3) I insist we hire a 15s Men’s national team coach from these shores, again at half the cost.
4) I insist that the Board allow the Collegiate Director more autonomy that permits him to make decisions that affect the collegiate game without having to wait for the rubber stamp of a Board whose focus always seems to be elsewhere.
5) I insist USA Rugby hire a marketing agency that is commission based whose job it is to find the finance and sponsorship to fund our national teams.
6) I insist USA Rugby hire the right person whose job it is to act as an employment agent for our best and brightest players. His job would be to find professional placements for Eagles players.
Once the new personalities are in place we can make a significant change in policy and make inter-scholastic rugby our No 1 priority.
I insist that Congress, Directors, and the Board implement these changes immediately. Should USA Rugby fail to make these changes I will work with the clubs in our region hold back future CIPP payments.
