This huge decision was given on Thursday after the league investigated several allegations that high-ranking figures within the team sexually harassed and verbally abused female employees for the last decade. This was reportedly “repeatedly and rampantly” according to TMZ.

15 woman came forward with allegations over the last year to give their story about the mean’s toxic workplace. One woman, former coordinator Emily Applegate, said she was told to wear revealing clothes so “men have something to look at.”

Another anonymous woman alleged that men at the football facility would stand at the base of the staircase and look up women’s skirts.
