Two THE Ohio State University cheerleading coaches, Eddie Hollins and Dana Bumbrey, were fired earlier this year following accusations of sexually harassing cheerleaders. Via the Columbus Dispatch:
Cheerleaders told investigators that Hollins made sexual jokes and sometimes slapped male students on the butt or tapped their testicles.
They also said Bumbrey made inappropriate remarks to the female cheerleaders, including using the nickname “Fornicate” for one of them. He regularly commented on the size of the women’s bottoms, they said, and made remarks such as “she always has her legs spread” when women were in compromising positions during routines.
Hollins told investigators that he took male cheerleaders to the gym at the Athletic Club in Downtown Columbus and showered in front of them on a few occasions.
There were also explicit text messages involved. Hollins faced similar accusations in 2006.[via Columbus Dispatch]
