COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – October 5, 2016 – As the Olympic quad finishes, there is often an accompanying period of transition amongst national governing bodies. And as such Craig Parnham, USWNT Head Coach, has chosen to step down from his position and move into a new leadership role within USA Field Hockey, effective as of December 31, 2016.
“I have not taken the decision to step down from my role lightly,” said Parnham. “Rio was my fifth Olympic Games. I feel that I can step back knowing that the program is in a healthier place than it was when I arrived. Perhaps even more satisfying than the results on the pitch has been watching this team grow and develop into a group that holds themselves accountable and takes ownership of their own direction. It has been a privilege to have worked with such dedicated, professional athletes. I would like to thank all those involved in seeing the U.S. Women’s National Team elevate themselves to one of the top six teams in the world.”
