Nebraska Coach Won't Testify On Anti-Bias Ordinance

Nebraska's assistant football coach Ron Brown says he won't testify at a public hearing on a proposed Lincoln ordinance to protect gay and transgender people from discrimination.

In a letter published in Sunday's Lincoln Journal Star
Brown says his Christian beliefs led him to express his opposition to homosexuality.

The letter notes that while he is against laws that protect gay
people, he would never discriminate against gay players.

Brown says that he won't speak at Monday's hearing because he's concerned media coverage of his involvement would be distracting.

Brown caused a stir in March when he testified against a similar
measure in Omaha and failed to distance his views from the
university. The city council approved the ordinance.
