Portland Thorns FC head coach Rhian Wilkinson has resigned from her position, only weeks after Wilkinson led the team to its third NWSL championship in her first season as head coach.

She confirmed the decision in a call with The Athletic on Thursday after being reached for comment.

Wilkinson said she was investigated and cleared of wrongdoing by the NWSL and its players union after she self-reported that she and a player had developed feelings for one another but had never acted upon them.

“The investigative process and player and staff willingness to use human resources and league reporting is critically important,” Wilkinson said.

Two sources familiar with the results of the investigation, who were granted anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the ongoing, league-wide joint investigation, confirmed that she will not be disqualified from any future work within the NWSL.

While no evidence of coercion, abuse of power imbalance or other misconduct was found, and no league or team policies were deemed violated, Wilkinson says she felt she had lost the confidence of the team as a whole.

Team owner Merritt Paulson announced Thursday he is putting the Thorns up for sale, a move that came in the wake of an investigation commissioned by U.S. Soccer into abuse and misconduct in women’s soccer.

The investigation was launched last year after North Carolina coach Paul Riley, the former coach of the Thorns, was accused of sexually harassing and coercing players. Riley, who was fired by the Courage, denied the allegations.
