    Middle Tennessee head coach Rick Stockstill spoke out about his formerly openly gay football player Alan Gendreau in the local newspaper today. Here's an excerpt:

    Rick Stockstill knew kicker Alan Gendreau was gay.

    The Middle Tennessee State coach said, though, that the place-kicker's sexual orientation did not affect his treatment of the player.

    “It was never an issue and I did not treat him any differently than any other player,” Stockstill told The City Paper on Wednesday. “Our players didn’t treat him differently. Alan was very professional in everything he did. He was a really good player for us. He was not a distraction whatsoever on this team. He was a football player. He was a student-athlete in my opinion.”

    The way it should be! I love Coach Stock. One of the true coaches that gets it!
