The head coach of the Marshfield High School dance team has been fired after the team performed to an edited version of Robin Thicke's popular but racy hit "Blurred Lines."
Superintendent Peg Geegan told News-Herald Media that she couldn't comment on personnel issues but Lisa Jolin was removed as head coach for "appropriate reasons and following district protocols."
Parents and students said they are concerned that the dance team might disband without Jolin. They said she brought a measure of respectability to an activity that students had looked down on, and two of the seven team members have already quit.
Jolin said she doesn't know how many people had called Geegan to complain about the song choice, but she heard no complaints immediately after the performance.
