Ron Brown refuses to testify at gay discrimination hearing
University of Nebraska's assistant football coach Ron Brown did not testify at a public hearing on a proposed Lincoln ordinance to protect gay and transgender people from discrimination.
Brown says he is concerned media coverage of his involvement would be distracting.
He says his Christian beliefs led him to express his opposition to homosexuality.
And while he is against laws that protect gay people, he says he would never discriminate against gay players.
Brown caused a stir in March when he testified against a similar measure in Omaha and failed to distance his views from the university.
