Kevin Mazeika is the new national team coordinator of U.S men's gymnastics team.

Mazeika led the U.S. men to back-to-back Olympic gymnastics medals for the first time. In his new role, he will manage and supervise the technical side of the junior and senior men's national teams. Martha Karolyi has a similar job with the women's national team.

Mazeika coached the U.S. team at the 2004 and 2008 Olympics. The Americans won the silver in Athens, their first team medal in 22 years and first at a non-boycotted games since 1932.

They were surprise bronze medalists in Beijing, making the podium despite losing 2004 Olympic champion Paul Hamm and his twin brother Morgan to injuries.
