Is it generally acceptable for a childless man to coach youth sports?

My husband enjoyed coaching youth football when he was stationed on a military base. There, it was understood that many of the coaches didn't have kids because the troops were expected to have some kind of community service and coaching counted towards that. In the civilian world, would parents or organizations look askance at a man who wants to coach but doesn't have kids on the team/in the league? Anything he should know about finding a team?
