Players and managers wearing pinstripes weren't the only ones who would feel the heat from "The Boss" after a bad performance. Anyone wearing red, white and blue could find themselves under scrutiny, too.
"John has worked hard to lead the company through challenging transitions in our industry, and was instrumental in driving our very significant growth in digital revenues," Probst said in a statement.
"The American public has high expectations for our Olympic team and our Olympic athletes," Probst said. "There was a lot of speculation about where we would finish as a team. And a lot of people predicted that we might finish second and some even suggested third. So we're extremely proud of what our team has accomplished and what our athletes have accomplished."
