Maggie Haney Biography-Wiki
Maggie Haney is an American former gymnastics coach, serving as the head coach at MG Elite Gymnastics. She is famously known for coaching 2016 Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez and 2018 World champion Riley McCusker.
USA Gymnastics officials first received abuse complaints against Haney in 2016. In August 2019, it was announced Haney was under investigation by USA Gymnastics over allegations of verbal and emotional abuse. At least a half dozen families filed complaints against Haney, alleging that she instructed injured gymnasts to remove casts and continue training, as well as screaming at and threatening gymnasts. On February 3, 2020, her hearing on the allegations began.
Haney was suspended from coaching minor athletes pending the outcome of the hearing. During the hearing, testimony was given regarding major injuries suffered by Haney’s athletes. Riley McCusker, a World champion trained by Haney, suffered rhabdomyolysis, a muscle condition linked to overtraining, in 2019.
In March, USA Gymnastics suspended Victoria Levine, a coach, and co-owner of MG Elite Gymnastics, due to allegations that she also was verbally abusive to athletes. USA Gymnastics claimed that the hearing panel would release a decision on April 22, then said there was a calendar error, and the decision would be made public on April 29.

Maggie Haney Laurie Hernandez
Laurie Hernandez’s comeback for the Tokyo Olympics was delayed because of her former coach’s verbal and emotional abuse.
Hernandez has never spoken publicly about the abuse allegations against Maggie Haney. But in a lengthy Instagram post in response to Haney’s suspension, Hernandez, a member of the Final Five that won gold at the Rio Games in 2016, said that years of being yelled at and belittled had made her think she hated gymnastics.
“It wasn’t until mid 2018 I realized it was the people that made the experience bad, not the sport itself,” Hernandez wrote Thursday. “I moved across the country (NJ-CA) at 18 to try a fresh start. I wanted to unlearn a lot of bad habits physically, but mostly mentally, that I had picked up as a result of my old experiences.”
USA Gymnastics banned Haney for eight years Wednesday after a hearing panel determined she had emotionally and verbally abused gymnasts. Haney is not allowed to coach any USA Gymnastics athletes or in any of its member clubs, and cannot attend any USA Gymnastics events unless it is to accompany her daughter.
