At the beginning of his freshman year, Will Sheridan came out privately to his teammate and roommate at Villanova Mike Nardi as being gay. He also came out to his parents months later, after he ended his freshman year in the university. His teammates at Villanova knew about his homosexuality, but kept a "wall of silence" opting for team unity. On May 16, 2011, and in an interview with Dana O'Neil on ESPN.com, he came out publicly at the age of 26, after retiring from basketball. After the publication of the article, he also appeared on ESPN's Outside the Lines.
In an interview with Outsports, he said many of his songs, most notably "You Know I Got It" and "Set Fire in the Streets" did contain lyrics about homosexuality prior to coming out publicly.
