Coach Criticized for Linking University to His Politics

March 9, 2012
 

Harvey Perlman, chancellor of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, has told an assistant football coach that it was inappropriate for him to give the stadium address as his own when offering his views to the Omaha City Council, The Lincoln Journal Star reported. Ron Brown, the assistant coach, urged the council not to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation. While Perman didn't question his right to offer his views, he objected to Brown giving 1 Memorial Stadium as his address. Perlman said that doing so may have created an impression that he was speaking for the university, which does not discriminate based on sexual orientation.
