49ers assistant Sowers is first openly LGBT coach in men's pro sports

(TSX / STATS) -- San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Katie Sowers came out in a story published in Outsports on Tuesday, becoming the first openly LGBT coach in all of men's professional sports.

Sowers became just the second female coach in the league earlier this month when she was hired full-time with the 49ers for the 2017 season.

"No matter what you do in life, one of the most important things is to be true to who you are," the 31-year-old Sowers told Outsports. "There are so many people who identify as LGBT in the NFL, as in any business, that do not feel comfortable being public about their sexual orientation. The more we can create an environment that welcomes all types of people, no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, the more we can help ease the pain and burden that many carry every day."
