    DENVER — Track coach Remi Korchemny agreed Monday to
    permanently stay out of elite-level coaching, marking the first
    time a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency case has led to a coach being
    banished for doping violations.

    The case is significant because it shows USADA will pursue
    coaches — not just athletes.

    USADA brought charges against the 74-year-old last November,
    accusing him of violating doping rules. He's best known as the
    coach for sprinters Kelli White and Dwain Chambers, both of whom
    tested positive for banned substances and subsequently were
    suspended.
