Mavericks hire former AT&T exec after report of hostile workplace

By  | 

DALLAS (AP) The Dallas Mavericks have hired former AT&T executive Cynthia Marshall as interim CEO a week after allegations of sexual misconduct against ex-team president Terdema Ussery in a report.

The Sports Illustrated report also alleged a culture of a hostile workplace for women in the franchise.

Owner Mark Cuban says his mind was made up on hiring Marshall when he was told, "the most devastating day at AT&T was when (Marshall) left." Marshall ran human resources and was AT&T's chief diversity officer.
