“I don’t know if I’ll ever play soccer again. It’s hard for me to get past and not associate soccer with this painful, traumatic experience,” said former Washington Spirit player Kaiya McCullough about coach Richie Burke’s alleged verbal and emotional abuse that caused her to leave the team. As The Post’s Molly Hensley-Clancy was reporting Ms. McCullough’s story in August, the team announced Mr. Burke had stepped down from the head coaching job for “health concerns” and had been reassigned to the front office. On Sept. 28, the league announced he had been fired and prohibited from working in the league following a harassment investigation. Spirit representatives are currently barred from participating in league governance for failures in handling the situation. On Tuesday, the team’s controlling owner, Steve Baldwin, resigned, as players had requested.
