Cheryl Bailey will step down as the executive director of the National Women’s Soccer League upon the completion of a search for her replacement, sources confirm.
Bailey guided the NWSL through its first two seasons of existence, in 2013 and 2014. She was named to her position on Nov. 29, 2012.
Those familiar with the situation say Bailey’s decision comes from wanting to spend more time with family. Her decision has been known within league circles for some time. Bailey will stay on in her current role until her successor is identified; there is no timeline for a replacement.
On Thursday a job posting in the NCAA’s listings revealed that the NWSL is looking for an “executive director/commissioner.” Applications and nominations are being accepted.
Bailey and the NWSL did not return requests for comment on Sunday.
