WUSA: Power GM Marenoff 'resigns'

General Manager Susan Marenoff has departed the New York Power in what the club on Wednesday termed a ''resignation,'' and WUSA chief operating officer Kevin Crow will run the organization until a replacement is found.

Marenoff, who had been with the Power since November 2000, was quoted in a Power news release as saying her ''resignation will offer the team an opportunity for a fresh perspective and to continue on so that it may achieve its ultimate goals.''

Marenoff is the second general manager of a Time Warner Cable-owned WUSA team to depart in the last six months. Jerome Ramsey was reassigned within the cable company after he ''resigned'' as Carolina GM in December. His announcement followed pleas to Time Warner by people in the Courage and league offices to remove Ramsey from the post.

Crow served as San Diego's general manager -- and was the Spirit's interim coach most of the 2002 season -- before leaving the team to become the WUSA's COO last summer. He was in charge of the Courage between Ramsey's departure and the appointment of Scott Travasos as general manager.

The Power, riding a phenomenal season by MVP Tiffeny Milbrett, reached the WUSA semifinals in 2001, but it went 3-17-1 and surrendered 62 goals during a disastrous 2002. Head coach Patrick Farmer was fired during last season, and Scotsman Tom Sermanni -- a former Australia national team head coach and San Jose CyberRays assistant coach -- was hired following the 2002 campaign.

New York, which has been devastated by a series of injuries, is 1-3 this season following a victory at defending champion Carolina last weekend. The Power plays at Philadelphia on Saturday.

Marenoff, who had previously worked with the 1999 Women's World Cup organization, the WTA (tennis) tour and Madison Square Garden in New York, said in the release that she ''will be taking some time for myself and will then concentrate on my next career move.''
