Ohio State University coaches fired following sexual harassment allegations

COLUMBUS - Two assistant cheerleading coaches at Ohio State University have been fired after they were accused of sexually harassing cheerleaders.

The school fired the two coaches back in May following an investigation. Cheerleaders told investigators that one of the coaches made inappropriate sexual jokes and sometimes touched the male cheerleaders. The other coach was accused of making inappropriate remarks to the female cheerleaders.

The Columbus Dispatch reported the two coaches said they were just playing around.

Also, Ohio State is requiring the head cheerleading coach to attend sexual-harassment awareness training after failing to report initial complaint.
