    Was this coaches sexuality playing a factor...

    in the decision to not resign this head coach? When I saw the title I thought he was fired towards the end of the year with more years on his contract.. But instead they just choose to not resign him. I don't know if its because of sexuality or maybe there is something else behind the scenes?....what do you guys think?

    No it isn't.

    A new AD came in 3 months ago and wanted his own guy to be coach. The coach was not fired his contract just expired. The coach's record is irrelevant, new AD wants a new guy. We see this all the time with professional GMs. Unless there's hard evidence in the coach's favor this sounds like a case of sour grapes.

    Not to mention his "wedding" was 2 1/2 years ago. Which means they clearly knew he was gay a long time ago. If they wanted to fire him for that, then why wait till now?

    Ridiculous that this gets attention just cause the guy is gay.

    Says the new Athletic Director was hired in August.
    However no, I doubt him being gay had anything to do with it.
    New boss wanted a new coach, not unusual. And I doubt this guy is trying to eliminate all gays from the school of 30,000+ students. Cheerleaders, drama department, etc -- I'm sure this coach isn't the only gay person on campus.

    This guy is just trying to start crap. News alert, being gay doesn't stop you from being fired. The AD wanted a new start.
