LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky cheerleading head coach Ryan Martin O’Connor has announced the hiring of former Kentucky cheerleader Whitney (Agee) Hollman as UK’s new assistant coach.

We welcome her and her family back to Lexington and are looking forward to working hard to continue the gold standard in college cheerleading.”
While at UK, Hollman became one of the most decorated cheerleaders in program history.

Hollman is married to Jay Hollman, who was also a member of the USA National team in 2018. The couple has a son, Greyson, who is one year old.
