The Breakers

At some point in the show, Coach got hired to become the head coach of a professional football team. I'm pretty sure the team was called the Orlando Breakers and that Coach basically brought his entire staff from Minnesota State with him to Orlando to coach the team. Like, of course Luther and Dauber were there, but also so were I think the athletic director and maybe even the tall basketball chick. I don't know how Coach was able to swing that, but it was basically like he never even left Minnesota State. Man, what a stupid idea; good work Coach writing staff.

I don't remember any episodes whatsoever from this time period of the show, but I'm pretty sure that Coach had a bigger office.

i watched your thing on gambling with 2 friends. we didn't get it, was there a spaceship or some naked chick in the back that we didn't see? we didn't go through frame by frame or anything, so maybe we missed the comedy. that was the only one we watched, so maybe all the rest of them are really really funny, but we are really really put off by how un-funny that one was. i think i'm going to go gamble now. we like the coach blog though.

To each his own, I suppose. Try 1,900 Lady Lane, that one seems perhaps more accessible.

Thanks for the feedback on the Coach Blog; I'm glad you like it, whoever you are.

Don't forget the episode of Coach where Coach and Christine were trying to have a baby but couldn't. Not only did it wrongfully scare thousands of young men into avoiding hot baths/jacuzzis/hot tubs at all costs for the rest of their lives (as the reason that Coach's "boys" couldn't swim because they'd been deformed/cooked in coach's scrotum after many years of post-football game soaks). Then coach found a way to meet Troy Aikman, who played himself, and coach asked Troy if he would donate his sperm to Christine. At first Troy was a little hesitant, but eventually coach was able to use his oratory skills to get Troy to go along with the plan.

One problem though. Christine only wanted to have Coach's baby so she nixed the idea of having Troy donate his sperm to her. So then Coach had to tell Troy that he no longer wanted Troy's sperm. Boy did Coach have a tough time explaining that one to Troy...

Fortunately Luther and Dauber were able to lessen the tension by commenting on the situation as only they could.

Damn, that sounds like an episode with some hilarious situations. It's too bad I don't remember that one. Thanks Jose.

Jeez, you know, your blog is just amazingly rich with forgetten details! Thank you! I couldn't remember much anything regarding Coach except that Dick Van Dyke's brother was somehow involved in the show with some connection to leader of the Protest reformation in Germany. Is my memory correct here? Also, I seem to recall that, yes, the show had something or other to do with a sport in which students were compelled by either poverty or odd ambition to place an object across a line of chalk so to keep their scholarships. Perhaps you can help me figure out if these false memories or not.

Anyway, I love your blog. Naturally, I re-read everything you write at least ten time aloud while shouting out of a window on the 59th floor of a building but I am not sure that is really relevant to this post.

Keep up the good work. I hope that Craig T. Nelson--I believe he was associated with the show--appreciates everything you do to help keep him in the public eye.
