USA Curling says CEO Jeff Plush has prioritized athlete safety as NWSL president

Eagan, Minnesota – USA President Curling says CEO Jeff Blush “acted in accordance with prioritizing athlete safety” during his tenure as the Women’s National Football League captain, as an investigation uncovered years of systemic emotional abuse and sexual misconduct.

The Curling Council met Monday after a report on the independent investigation into abuses in women’s soccer.

The football investigation found that Plush, who was a commissioner in the NFL from 2014 to 2017, was aware of allegations of sexual harassment and coercion against Portland Thorns coach Paul Riley, but did nothing to prevent Riley from continuing to coach in the league. Former acting US Attorney Sally Yates, who led the soccer investigation, said Plush did not respond to requests for an interview.
