Cheerleading coach: Hooters job got me fired

FORT MYERS, Fla. - A high school cheerleader coach in southwest Florida says she was fired because a parent complained about her part-time job at a Hooters restaurant.

The Naples Daily News reported that 24-year-old Nicole Zivich was fired from Estero High School Nov. 21. Zivich told the Lee County School Board this week that a parent of one of the cheerleaders had sent a flurry of emails complaining about her second job at the popular chicken wing restaurant where waitresses wear tight-fitting uniforms.

Citing a privacy policy regarding personnel issues, the school district has not given a reason for her termination. But school superintendent Joseph Burke said it had nothing to do with her employment at Hooters.

She was working under contract as the school's varsity cheerleading coach.
