The leadership shakeup within the U.S. women’s national team persists as General Manager Kate Markgraf is set to step down from her role by the end of this month, as confirmed by the U.S. Soccer Federation on Friday.

Markgraf’s contract is set to conclude in August, and the USSF stated that she will aid in the transition until then.

The announcement of Markgraf’s departure, at the age of 46, follows a day after Manager Vlatko Andonovski’s resignation.

The U.S. team’s elimination by Sweden in the round of 16, determined by a penalty shootout, marked their earliest World Cup exit and seemed to solidify Markgraf’s decision.

Discussions about her potential continuation with U.S. Soccer had been ongoing despite this disappointing outcome.
