Merritt Paulson says he and executives Gavin Wilkinson, and Mike Golub will remove themselves from all Thorns related duties. Heather Davies, the team's General Counsel, will handle all team-related decisions. Paulson says the unveiling of the report was the darkest day he's experienced. He says he can't apologize enough for their role in a gross systemic failure to protect player safety.
