During the course of the investigation, Lampson was placed on administrative leave due to "third-party reports of Lampson crossing professional boundaries with a Dash player."

The Dash and the NWSLA, the league's player association, hired a third-party lawyer, who carried out the investigation.

Lampson was hired as the club's goalkeeper coach on May 13, 2022.
