(THE COLLEGE FIX) -- The University of Kentucky has fired its entire cheerleading staff after a three-month investigation found its cheerleaders engaged in public drunkenness, nudity, and hazing.
On Monday, Head Coach Jomo Thompson and Assistant Coaches Ben Head, Spencer Clan and Kelsey LaCroix were all fired for “failing to provide reasonable oversight” during several off-campus events involving the cheerleading team.

According to the report following the investigation, at a team retreat at Lake Cumberland, some cheerleaders performed gymnastics routines known as “basket tosses,” which involved hurling their teammates from a dock into the water while either topless (for female cheerleaders) or bottomless (for males.) These routines were done while some of the coaches were present.
