Williams was a paid consultant for Boulder’s cheerleading team in 2015 and 2016.
But after a parent raised concerns, the team’s coach let Williams go.
9Wants to Know also learned that the owner of a gym in Brighton considered teaming up with Williams, but changed her mind after a week of watching him work with kids in her program.
"They would go to do things and if they would stop, like they would go into a tumbling pass and they would stop, and he would be like, ‘I'm going to punch you in the face if you don't do it next time,’” Julie Ledbetter said. “... You don't tell kids you're going to punch them in the face if they can't pull the skill."
Ledbetter said that she never saw any girls forced to do the splits but she also said she never left her athletes alone with Williams.
