Fired OSU band director wants job back, says he will continue to fix inappropriate culture

Ohio State University's fired marching band director says he wants his job back and will keep trying to fix the culture issues that led to his dismissal.

Jonathan Waters, in an interview Monday with The Columbus Dispatch, says his July 24 firing was based on a "very flawed, very inaccurate report" of what was going within the unit.

A two-month investigation concluded Waters knew about but failed to stop a "sexualized culture" of rituals that included students marching in their underwear and performing sexually themed stunts to get explicit nicknames.

He offered to return and help rid the band of offensive traditions that he says date back decades. He'd been director since 2012.
