LONDON (AP) A senior member of Crystal Palace's coaching staff quit on Thursday after becoming embroiled in a text-message controversy that also involves former Cardiff manager Malky Mackay and is the subject of English Football Association investigation.
A dossier has been sent by Cardiff to the FA, outlining allegations that a series of inappropriate text messages were sent between Mackay and Moody while they were employed by the Welsh club. Sections of the British media reported that the messages were of a racist and sexist nature.
Hours after the governing body confirmed it was "investigating the matter," Palace accepted the resignation of Moody with immediate effect "in light of the events."
