Coach: Being Fired For Anti-Gay Views Would Be An 'Honor'

Nebraska Cornhuskers assistant coach Ron Brown has come under fire for publicly expressing sentiments some say are anti-gay, but he insists he'll continue to speak out against homosexuality.

In March, Brown, 55, testified against an Omaha anti-discrimination ordinance that extended protections to gay and transgender people, which prompted Barbara Baier of the Lincoln Board of Education to write to administrators at University of Nebraska–Lincoln to request the assistant coach's firing, the Associated Press is reporting.
