WASHINGTON – Former Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley and his ex-cheerleader wife are getting a divorce.

The Washington Post reports the divorce was filed Aug. 29 in Loudoun County, but that Cooley and wife Christy Oglevee separated in January.

The two met in 2005 when Cooley was separated from his first wife, the Post says, and Oglevee lost her cheerleading job with the team for dating Cooley.

Oglevee reportedly is now working for a family hair salon. Cooley, cut by the Redskins last month, has not yet been picked up by an NFL team.
