The University of Kentucky Cheerleading program has made a new hire. Ryan Martin O’Connor has been named the new head coach of the program, just over a month after the school dismissed the entire cheerleading staff for “lack of oversight.”
Per UK Athletics, O’Connor has had success at both Alabama-Birmingham and Ole Miss. She most recently coached Western Kentucky University and was also the coordinator of their spirit program.
“Ryan is exactly the kind of person we wanted to hire as we sought the next leader of Kentucky cheerleading,” Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart said.
The Lexington, KY native is also a former UK cheerleader from the 2008-2009 season.
“She has a proven track record of success, brings incredible energy to her work, and shares our commitment to both integrity and competitive excellence,” Barnhart said.
