NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will hold a press conference today Friday, September 19, beginning at 3 p.m. ET to address the various domestic violence and child abuse scandals currently plaguing the league. The event will mark Goodell’s first public statements since he sat down for an interview last week with CBS This Morning’s Norah O’Donnell.
Goodell will announce a new mandatory education and training program for NFL players and staff on issues of domestic and sexual violence. Despite calls for his resignation, Goodell is not expected to announce that he is stepping down.
