Andy Berg Headshot

A Wisconsin youth soccer coach was charged last week with the repeated assault of a child he was coaching.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Daniel Gildea is in custody in Round Rock, Texas after a warrant for his arrest was issued last Wednesday in Dane County, Wisc.

Gildea began abusing a young woman, who is now 18, back in 2012, while was coaching in Oregon, Wisc. The woman had returned from a family ski trip during which she had injured her knee. Gildea was her soccer coach at the time and offered to help rehabilitate the knee in training sessions.
