GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Two cheerleading coaches at a North Carolina college have resigned following rape allegations by a cheer team member who says they didn’t report her claims.

The News & Record reports that a North Carolina A&T; State University spokesman announced the departures Thursday, a day after the university said the cheer team won’t perform at its basketball games or at the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament in March.

A&T;’s cheerleaders haven’t performed since early February after a cheerleader alleged publicly that a former member of the marching band raped her. The cheerleader says the team’s two coaches brushed off her claims and didn’t report them as required by federal law. She had demanded that both coaches be fired.

Further details weren’t immediately released.
