NWSL commissioner out as fallout from sexual misconduct scandal continues

eddygates1 | October 2, 2021


National Women’s Soccer League commissioner Lisa Baird was forced out Friday, a day after a report by The Athletic revealed that a now-former coach had sexually coerced his players.

The Athletic was first to report Baird and general counsel Lisa Levine were ousted. The moves were confirmed to USA TODAY Sports by a person with knowledge of the situation who was granted anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

The NWSL confirmed Baird’s departure late Friday, saying it had “received and accepted” Baird’s resignation.  

The move came hours after the NWSL called off its games this weekend at the request of players.

“This week, and much of this season, has been incredibly traumatic for our players and staff, and I take full responsibility for the role I have played. I am so sorry for the pain so many are feeling,” Baird said in a statement announcing the pause.
