Coming Out: A Basketball Coach Says He’s Gay

Produced by

Anthony Nicodemo is the varsity basketball coach at Saunders High School in Yonkers, N.Y. Earlier this summer, he called a meeting with his players and their parents and told them he was gay. Nicodemo tells guest host Sean Cole he’d been keeping his personal life to himself for 17 years because he was afraid of disclosing anything that might keep him from coaching. So far, parents, players, administrators and alumni have rallied around him.
