Nevada coach OK with openly gay players?


Had CNN on the TV in the backgroung and they were doing a segment on Teo, wasn't really watching the story. They were interviewing a coach and the guys says 'As the coach of Nevada I'm Ok with an openly gay player as long as he doing good in the class room, up holding....'

Didn't catch what was said before that, but was just kind of surprised that a 1st year HC would go on national tv and say that.

ETA;just curious if anyone was watching that piece?

Why?

Not to get political at all, but I would have no problem saying that anywhere.

Would be some pretty bad publicity if he said he wasnt ok with them.

His tolerance and not having a backwards mindset is so refreshing. The fact that you were surprised speaks volumes

Why wouldn't he be? They don't have kooties so they should be able to play football just like anyone else.

When was the last time you heard a college football coach speak in a positive light about gay rights? Ever?
