University of California, Los Angeles, football coach Jim Mora has made a strong statement that he would welcome openly gay players to his team.
In a video for You Can Play, a campaign aimed at improving the environment for LGBT athletes, Mora says, “At UCLA, we play with integrity and we honor diversity. We respect all athletes and coaches. If you can play, you can play. And if you can coach, you can coach.”
The video is the first in the campaign to feature a head football coach prominently, reports Yahoo! Sports.
