After talking with his teammates, the time came for Allums to tell his head coach Mike Bozeman about his decsion.
"I was gonna have to hide a piece of me that was really important,” Allums said. “All my teammates knew. I don’t like keeping things from coach; I’m a very open person. It got to the point where I decided I wasn’t going to go through a whole season with my coach not really knowing me, even though I knew it would probably make him feel uncomfortable"
Unsure of how his coach would react, Allums tried to explain his situation as best he could, and to his surprise, his coach had this to say:
"Why would you think I wouldn’t have your back?” Allums remembered Bozeman asking. “I’ve had your back through everything. Our relationship has grown from nothing to this, and now you think I’d just turn my back on you because you told me this? No. I love you and I’ll always be here for you."
And then Bozeman released a public statement saying, "The George Washington University women’s basketball program, including myself, support Kye’s right to make this decision."
