According to reporting by Nancy Amour and Chris Bumbaca of USA TODAY Sports, Paul Riley has been temporarily suspended from SafeSport.

The move comes after a bombshell report from The Athletic, which accused the former NWSL coach of sexual coercion and emotional abuse.

Following the story, the North Carolina Courage fired Riley, and U.S. Soccer suspended his coaching license.

In a statement released on Thursday, NWSL commissioner Lisa Baird, who has since resigned, stated that the league would mandate team staff who regularly interact with players participate in US Center for SafeSport training.
