Coach in controversial cheerleader video fired from another school

DENVER - A coach shown pushing cheerleaders down in splits on video in Denver was fired from another Colorado high school last year because of concerns about his techniques.

Ozell Williams is among five school workers who were placed on leave after the videos were made public and police opened an investigation.

Williams worked with cheerleaders at Boulder High School in 2015 and 2016. The district says he was dismissed from last summer's camp after a coach saw him using a technique similar to that seen in the Denver videos. 

Administrators say they didn't learn about the problem until news of the videos broke this week.

Williams told The Denver Post that the videos were taken out of context but couldn't say talk about what happened yet.
