Utah Royals FC head coach Laura Harvey is reportedly leaving the club after two seasons for a job with U.S. Soccer, leaving the National Women’s Soccer League side without a coach less than two weeks before the College Draft.

The news was first reported by The Equalizer‘s Dan Lauletta on Friday.

U.S. Soccer has coaching vacancies across both its men’s and women’s youth national teams and Harvey is expected to fill the role of the under-20 women’s national team head coach.

It would not be her first time working with U.S. Soccer. She previously coached the U-23 USWNT in a temporary role in early 2017.

Months later, she was strongly linked to an increased role within the national team setup and less seriously linked to the then-vacant England women’s national team job, but she was named the Royals’ head coach. Harvey also interviewed for the USWNT job that eventually went to Vlatko Andonovski.

Harvey was the Royals’ first head coach and has been coaching in the NWSL since its inaugural season. After coaching in her native England, she joined Seattle Reign FC in 2013 and stayed until the end of the 2017 season.
