Clemson University football coach Dabo Swinney caused controversy this week when he was to be honored by a South Carolina lobbying group opposed to gay rights and same-sex marriage. A petition was started urging him to cancel and he did on his own days later, saying he didn't want to be a distraction and did not want to seem to endorse all the group's views. It raises the question of what responsibility a coach has to a diverse student body and how that might clash with his beliefs.

We are joined on the Podcast by Anthony Nicodemo, an openly gay high school basketball coach, who shares his perspective.
