Ohio State marching band director fired

Updated: Thursday, July 24, 2014

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University has fired the director of its celebrated marching band amid allegations he knew about and ignored "serious cultural issues" including sexual harassment.

Jonathan Waters had led the band since 2012, and served in lesser capacities for a decade. His popular halftime shows drew millions of viewers on YouTube. The Columbus Dispatch first reported his firing.

Fledgling university President Michael Drake on Thursday released details of a two-month investigation found Waters knew about and failed to correct a "sexualized" culture where students were pressured to march in their underwear and earn sexually-explicit nicknames with performances.

Messages were left with Waters seeking comment.

Drake said the band season will continue as the search for a new director begins. Former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery will lead a full review.
