The Orlando Pride have announced that they have placed head coach Amanda Cromwell on administrative leave. The team also placed assistant coach Sam Greene on leave, as well.

The team said that both Cromwell and Greene are under investigation. This decision came after recommendations, according to the statement, from the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and the NWSL Players Association (NWSLPA) joint investigative team.

For the time being, Seb Hines will serve as the interim head coach. Cromwell is under investigation for ‘alleged retaliation’ the league announced.

Cromwell was hired by the Pride in December. Before coming to the professional team, she was a head coach at the college level with the UCLA Bruins, where she was the head coach for the last nine seasons.

The first-year head coach is the second head coach away from their respective team. Houston Dash head coach James Clarkson was suspended by the team in April due to alleged ‘discrimination, harassment, abuse, and bullying.’

Hines leads the team onto the pitch on Sunday, June 12th against the Chicago Red Stars.
