Tuaolo: Gay athletes play for UH

Esera may be trying to get some headlines or he may be correct. Statistically it's a certainty that there are gay athletes in college football.

The controversy surrounding Hawaii coach Greg McMackin's comments at the WAC Football Preview last week was the lead topic on ESPN's Outside The Lines yesterday.

Among the guests on the program was former NFL player Esera Tuaolo, who announced he is gay in 2002. Tuaolo said he was upset by McMackin's use of a gay slur during a press conference.

"The funny thing about it is he has gay athletes on his team," Tuaolo said on the ESPN show.
