MOST COMMENTED

[WPS] Former U.S. women's world champion Mary Harvey has left her position as chief operating officer of Women's Professional Soccer as part of the continuing restructuring in the league office.

Harvey, who had come to WPS from FIFA, was hired to directly oversee the day-to-day affairs at the league and all aspects of player-related matters, including day-of-game operations, player relations, league drafts, international relations, scheduling, officiating and rules.

Melanie Fitzgerald, the senior director of operations for the W-League, will begin as WPS's manager of league operations next week.

Harvey was a women's pioneer, starting in goal on the 1991 U.S. Women's Championship team and winning a gold medal on the 1996 U.S. Olympic team.

She was inducted into the Cal Athletic Hall of Fame in 2000 and became the first woman inducted into the American Youth Soccer Association (AYSO) Hall of Fame in 2003.
