"This is a great honor for Marty, who has served all of us well in her capacity as a member of U.S. Soccer's Board of Directors," said Dr. Bob Contiguglia, President of U.S. Soccer. "We all know that Marty will continue to serve the sport of soccer in her new capacity at the USOC. I know that everyone joins with me in wishing Marty the best of luck in her new endeavor, and we all look forward to our continued working relationship with her."
