I think there was this one episode of Coach where Luther got totally sunburned. I think maybe the episode begins in Coach’s office and Coach and Dauber are talking about something football related and maybe they’re supposed to have a meeting or something but Luther’s not there. So then Dauber is all, “Hey Coach, where’s Luther?” and Coach is like “I don’t know, he said something about going tanning.” And then Dauber is like “Tanning?” and then Coach gives some response about how maybe Luther’s wife or girlfriend or something (I don’t remember if Luther was married) wanted him to try it out before their trip to some beach place.

Then, I think, Luther came in to the office and was just totally sunburned. And the audience laughed for over a minute and the camera just kept cutting between different angles while Coach and Dauber pretended to be speechless waiting for the laugher to stop.

I think that throughout the episode all sorts of hilarious hijinx happened to Luther, like maybe he had a hard time sitting down or maybe some unknowing football guy slapped him really hard on the back because he hadn’t seem him in so long.

I’m pretty sure he had a hilarious tan line around his eyes.

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.

The Vows

There was this one episode of Coach where Coach was hell of stressed-out because he and Christine had agreed that in their upcoming wedding (whenever that was) they would be writing their own vows. Being a football coach, this wasn’t the sort of thing that Coach was really that interested in doing, and I think he only did it to make Christine happy. I think there were all kinds of jokes about how Coach hadn’t even started working on his vows and Christine had had hers memorized for months. Like maybe Dauber was all: “Coach, how’re the vows coming?” and Coach would make some joke about how he was almost done buying the paper he was going to write them on or something like that.

At some point in the episode, Christine ended up in the hospital for some reason. I remember that Coach was visiting her and she was upset because she didn’t think he’d worked on his vows at all when, in fact, he had. He ended up surprising her (and the audience) by reciting his vows right there in the hospital. Though this was a romantic gesture, it seemed like the vows were a little bit too jokey to be the sorts of vows you would want at your wedding. But I guess if you’re going to marry a sexist football coach, this is as romantic as it gets.

Eventually they left the hospital I'm pretty sure.
