Former FA chief executive Mark Palios has told ITV's Good Morning Britain around 60 to 70 coaches were banned from football after a 2001 commission into abuse.
He said the commission was carried out in partnership with the Premier League and Football League.
Mr Palios said he was unaware if the information was passed on to police as the commission had preceded his arrival at the FA in 2003.

Greg Clarke said that football, and other institutions, seemed to have a 'total unawareness' of the problem of child abuse in the 1990s.
The darts world champion was fiercely criticised for his 'offensive' and 'homophobic' comments about abuse victims.
