NWSL announces new executive group after harassment scandal


PORTLAND (AP) — Following the resignation of the National Women’s Soccer League commissioner amid a sexual harassment and misconduct scandal involving a longtime coach, a three-woman executive committee has been formed to oversee league operations.

The NWSL also launched an independent investigation into the league’s handling of abuse claims.

This week the league was rocked when two former players came forward with allegations of harassment, including sexual coercion, against North Carolina coach Raul Riley.
