Kentucky fires Jomo Thompson, cheer team coaches after nudity, hazing investigation
Where are the pics?
Members of the squad reportedly performed “basket tosses” — a gymnastics routine that requires throwing a person in the air — while either topless or bottomless and within view of some coaches at a team retreat at Lake Cumberland, the university’s internal investigation found.
Coaches failed to confiscate alcohol brought by students to the retreat and coaches allowed cheerleading alumni to bring boats and alcohol to the same retreat, the release stated. Some squad members became so intoxicated they required medical treatment, the release stated.
At a separate cheerleading camp in Tennessee, some members of the team were directed by others to perform “lewd chants and wear outfits that did not include underwear,” the release stated.
