US Soccer, Jill Ellis announce coach mentorship program
There’s been very few opportunities to be in a room, or be on a coaching license course, with other women,” Ellis said. Others include longtime North Carolina and former national team coach Anson Dorrance and Laura Harvey, former National Women's Soccer League coach and current youth national team coach. Two women, Ellis and Dutch national team coach Sarina Wiegman, faced off in the final. Ellis, among 17 coaches involved in the program, has been mentoring Monica Vergara, Mexico's under-20 women's national team coach. Since she stepped down as coach, Ellis has been enjoying time with her family while also riding out the coronavirus pandemic.
