    I was watching college football today and got to thinking, I'm wondering if there are any high school, college, or NFL head or assistant coaches that are gay and out? I've never heard of any, but maybe someone on RJ could shed some light on this subject. You think they may be closeted? I can only imagine the coach each year has got to keep his tongue in his mouth when he sees these fine handsome jocks dress for the game. LOL!

    I don't know of any coaches, but I do know of a current NFL player (who I'm not going to name) who is not technically "out" but makes no effort to hide either. He is often seen in public with his boyfriend and they are obviously affectionate, more than friends.

    I doubt any are out ...
    schools are still very homophobic
    esp when it comes to adolescent boys

    THINK! Of course there are gay football coaches, every bit as much as there are gay politicians. DOH!.

    We have unrealistic expectations in sports, and gayness is still taboo, much as several other things in sports. It's (gayness / bi-ness) everywhere, and, when you think clearly, it just makes sense.

    It would be moronic to think that there were no queers as coaches.

    Silly question, but, an easy one to answer.

    One of the guys who was very helpful in establishing the Michigan Panthers (our gay flag football team) was a local high school football coach (but not out).

    The Univ. Of Michigan crew coach was out (it was a few years ago - not sure if still there) as he parked his van in a well known cruise area by Cooper river in Cherry Hill.

    Hard to imagine a gay football (or water polo in my case) coach........I just can't see it! So, would it go like this? "Alright - God-dammit, you fuckers get your butts into the pool and let's kick some ass!" (the straight coach). From the gay coach we might instead hear, "Well then, you splendid fellows look fabulous in your speedos - so what say you all get on out to the pool - and have a terrific game - and oh - don't be too rough on the visiting team now!"

    It's hardly a silly question. Answers are usually far more weak of intellect and inane than the questions themselves.

    You skipped part of the OP's question: are they out?

    I see three probables:

    Guy No 1 is out, and doesn't succumb to social pressure and for love of football, tries to become a coach. The PTA is in an uproar and he never gets the position or does and loses it.

    Guy No 2, for love of football or by happenstance becomes a football coach, he has a morsel of intelligence and knows the pressure he will face if his orientation becomes widely known, and so remains hidden.

    Guy No 3 knows the difficulty he will face trying to attain a coaching position as a known gay man, and so abandons the pursuit.

    No parent is going to have a 'deviant' salivating over their child. Nothing assuages parental instinct when the mere possibility of anything untoward happening to their child exists.
    For a coach to be out, it would have to be a school in a very liberal area, or above college level.

    Sure, the possibility of a coach happening to be gay is certainly not impossible, but as for him being out? Highly improbable.

    To think we have a smart ass on these threads. Unfortunately, it doesn't take much for a guy like Chucky to ruin what could be a good topic for conversation, but has to be sabotaged by someone who couldn't even think of a single football coach that is gay and out. Nice one Chucky. If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't bother posting. And yes, I'm quite aware that there are gay coaches...but are there any that are out was my question. Next time read the question before you open your flap. Thanks to the rest of the posters who are willing to participate in the thread without being a wise ass.

    That is if you want to perpetuate a stereotype. As a seemingly masculine gay man yourself, I'm befuddled as to why you would do that though.

    NJDewd> The Univ. Of Michigan crew coach was out

    Charley was the associate head coach... and very out.

    He was (is?) also the head coach of women's crew at Eastern Michigan.

    There was a "South Park" episode about how The Mormons ran out the gay scoutmaster and replaced him with a pedophile.

    In fact, The Scouts, ran by The Mormons, is headquartered right here in Texas, and, although they are religious nuts, and although they use public funds, and public facilities, they have institutionalized hate: they don't want queer scouts, just FYI. They certainly don't want queer scoutmasters, either. You can ask them, at http://www.scouting.org.

    Oh, yeah...they have a thing about queers being married, too. Golly...wrong thread.

    you, sir, are a dipshit and were obviously never a boy scout... mormons have scout troops, yes... they do not, in any way, run the national program... and the south park scout master episode never mentions mormons.

    Actually, the young man's name calling aside, I had a long and drawn out email conversation with them (The Scouts) just a few years ago. If I still had the emails from the scouts, I'd be happy to show them to you.

    Penn and Teller actually mentioned The Mormons in their "Bullshit" series, with regard to scouting, and it was not in the "South Park" episode.

    Whatever name you choose to call me is fine. I spent 11 years in commercial broadcast news and I don't make unqualified statements, and I certainly won't go around calling folks names because I can't think of a better rebuttal. I pride myself in doing research and looking beyond the fluff. Sometimes, ignorant folks lash out, but, from my point of view, they can't help it because, after all, they ARE ignorant.

    Next time, do your homework. You'll find everything I said is true.

    Mormons don't officially run the national program, but there are plenty of Mormons running the program, if you know what I mean. They're also the largest contributors to the association and also have the biggest following.

    Just ask any Mormon, myself included.

    They don't run the scouts... it is a conservative organization, yes, and the mormon church has chose to use scouting as their primary youth organization for young men, but they do not run the national program... individual mormons might be highly involved, but it is by no means a mormon program... i would hate to see what your broadcasts would have looked like, can only imagine the dialogue... And Penn and Teller aren't what i would call reliable sources...

    Penn and Teller, along with Showtime, have no wish to be engaged in a libel suit, so, consequently, and, as a matter of clear thinking, would never go to air without qualified statements, nor without the blessings of their legal team. I encourage you to view their episode on scouting.

    The "South Park" episode was a parody of religious zealouts. They fired the gay guy and hired the pedophile instead.

    I personally received email back in 2001 from BSA, right here in Irving, Texas, in a long conversation that gays, and non-believers, were not welcome in The Scouts. If I still had them, I'd post them here.

    My mom was den mother for many years, and I grew up in the middle of it.

    Logan, flex89, above, lives with me, and is openly gay, and ex-Mormon. He was rejected from The Scouts because he was gay.

    I'm afraid you haven't been clear thinking and need to revisit your thought process.

    My point being is that they utilize public funds, public places, and are openly hateful and discriminatory.

    While, to the letter, Scouting was started as a government program (congressional charter and military grants), The Mormons have bought, and exert, a heavy influence on those programs. Penn and Teller got into all the legal details in their investigation.

    My points are:
    1. Religious organizations / false belief systems / cults are vehicles of hate and intolerance.
    2. Until folks come out and become honest, they only empower that hate and intolerance.
    3. Hiding only makes the problem worse.

    I encourage you to research the matter further, and, before lashing out in infantile fashion, do your home work. We have, I assure you.

    Please time now to watch these episodes:
