FRISCO (AP) - The chief executive of the FC Dallas soccer club has resigned as he deals with a felony charge in New York.

Doug Quinn was arrested Nov. 10 by New York police. A criminal complaint says he repeatedly punched his wife Elizabeth Quinn after an argument in their Manhattan hotel room, put a pillow over her head and applied enough pressure to impede her breathing.

He’s charged with single counts of felony strangulation and misdemeanor assault and free on $20,000 bond.

Quinn has been on administrative leave since. In a team statement Wednesday, he said he was resigning “to spend more time with my two beautiful daughters.”

Team owner Clark Hunt said Quinn leaves the club “well-positioned for future success.”

Quinn to appear next in a New York court March 14.
