Chris Burns, an assistant men's basketball coach at Bryant University, has come out as gay, making him the first publicly out men's college basketball coach. Burns shared a personal story on Outsports and USA Today did a feature story interviewing Burns and others at Bryant.

It's been a long time coming for Burns, who has been dating men since college. It's also a big deal for the coaching profession in general, as Burns has broken a key barrier in sports. And, like virtually every male athlete or coach to come out publicly over the last 15 years, Burns has been widely accepted and supported by people around the team and across the college basketball media.
