Kate Markgraf will reportedly be named as the United States women's national team's first-ever general manager.
Doug McIntyre of Yahoo Sports reported multiple sources have signalled the imminent appointment of the former USA defender, who won two Olympic gold medals and the FIFA World Cup during her playing career.
According to Sports Illustrated's Jenna West, Markgraf will play a role in appointing the U.S.' next head coach after the departure of Jill Ellis.
Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated tweeted he believes Utah Royals FC coach Laura Harvey is the front-runner to succeed Ellis, but Markgraf will consider all candidates.
Markgraf has recently worked in broadcasting, providing commentary and punditry for ESPN. The 42-year-old made 201 appearances for her country from 1998 to 2010, and she has remained a respected voice in her field.
The Michigan-born former player recently described the current U.S. side as the best collection of players to ever wear the country's shirt.
The USWNT swept to victory at the 2018 FIFA Women's World Cup in France, winning their fourth world championship. Ellis' team defeated the Netherlands 2-0 in the final in Lyon on July 7.
