LARRY STONE, former U.S. head coach and national Coach of the Year, has been named interim head coach of the U.S. women's jumping team, replacing Casey Colby, who has resigned.
    Stone retired a year ago after nearly three decades as regional coach based in Lake Placid, New York. His daughter, Molly, was a ski jumper in the late 1990s and Stone served as a coach for several women as he ran a program based in Lake Placid, including Lindsey Van, the No. 2 in women's Continental Cup jumping — the highest level for women — for the last two seasons.
    He was a nordic combined athlete at Williams College and focused on jumping in the early 1970s after graduating. He began coaching jumping in the late 1970s and served a variety of positions — national development coach, technical director, U.S. head coach for the 1993 season, regional coach — after joining the U.S. Ski Team staff in 1990.
    Stone and his wife, Meg, live in Wilmington, N.Y.
