Ohio State Marching Band Director Dismissed
Ohio State University has fired band director Jon Waters after an internal investigation found that he knew about and ignored "serious cultural issues" including sexual harassment.
OSU President Michael Drake released details of a two-month investigation, which found Waters failed to correct a "sexualized" culture where students were pressured to march in their underwear and earn sexually-explicit nicknames with performances.
Drake says the band season will continue as the search for a new director begins.
