Just what the hell is going on at the Swoosh?! According to a company spokesperson, Nike's vice president of footwear, Greg Thompson, has left! He's the sixth high-level executive to part ways with the sportswear giant in a matter of a weeks.

Thompson's departure follows those of head of diversity Antoine Andrews, senior brand director Vikrant Singh and president of global brand digital marketing innovation Daniel Tawiah. In March, the Swoosh lost its president Trevor Edwards and Jayme Martin, a brand vice president.

The reason for Thompson's departure is unclear at this point. Stay tuned as the story unfolds.
