Robert Fegg steps down as USA Luge head coach

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — USA Luge announced on Friday that head coach Robert Fegg is resigning.

Fegg, who led the team through the Beijing Games, coached the junior national team for two seasons starting in 2018 prior to being promoted to national team head coach in May 2020 to replace Bill Tavares.

A search for his replacement has already begun.

“We wish Robert nothing but the best as he moves forward in his career,” Jim Leahy, USA Luge CEO, said in a statement. “In his time with us, Robert always gave us his best efforts with passion and commitment, and kept the success of the athletes and the organization as his top priorities.”

Fegg joined the American luge federation after coaching stints in Canada and South Korea.
