Soccer Coach Fired for Being Gay?
CNN reports today that a women’s soccer coach at Belmont University, a Christian School in Nashville, Tenn., may have been fired for being gay. According to the report, the coach was relieved of her job after she announced that her lesbian partner was pregnant.
The university, which is treading hot water over the decision, according to Sports Illustrated, denies the accusation, saying that the coach – Lisa Howe – was planning to leave after six successful seasons and that it was a “mutual” decision. But her team’s players aren’t so sure they agree and staged a sit-in.
