    Not exactly the freshest premise for a comedy. But what Coach lacks in flash or originality, it makes up in steady execution. A winning cast and decent writing will do that. [28 Feb 1989, p.II-13]

    Coach is painlessly affable. Mr. Nelson, departing from his customary serious roles, reveals a nice sense of comic timing. The only thing missing is a smidgin of originality.

    Just so he doesn't bumble and fumble in the ''What does it take to be a dad?'' area - because that's been done before and done to death. [28 Feb 1989, p.3D]

    The cast performs intelligently, but deserves better material. For Coach, not a championship season

    If Coach were a college football team, it would be Columbia - before it broke the notorious losing streak. [28 Feb 1989, p.C5]

The show follows head coach Hayden Fox of the Minnesota State Screaming Eagles as he struggles to lead the college football team to a winning season, and also to reconnect with his estranged daughter. Craig T. Nelson is perfectly cast as Coach Fox, and Jerry Van Dyke is hilarious as his comedic sidekick. And, despite following a lot of the usual sitcom tropes, the show has a lot of heart. Though it’s only a 13 episode season, Coach: Season 1 packs in plenty of laughs. Expand
