Four female soccer coaches in the US have been banned for life for abuse

Four soccer coaches named in an investigation into misconduct and misconduct by the United States’ National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) have been banned for life, the entity reported.

The penalties were part of a wider package of suspensions and fines against various individuals and organisations, which came after the publication of the findings of an investigation led by the NWSL.

The league said last month it had detected “continued misconduct” at most league clubs, after an earlier investigation revealed evidence of harassment and abuse.

The investigation looked at player complaints over 14 months and exposed systemic flaws in the league.

Coaches banned for life on Monday include Paul Riley, Christy Holley, Rory Dames and Richie Burke.

Seven others have also been suspended or will be required to admit wrongdoing and accept responsibility for misconduct before being considered for future NWSL employment.

NWSL commissioner Jessica Berman said the league “will continue to prioritize the implementation and improvement of policies, programs and systems that prioritize the health and safety of players.”
