Yes, Viacom did air this show on Nick but only for a short time. They never got to the Orlando seasons. I think I saw way too much Coach anyways. He is so mean. No wonder why Christine got so mad at him. But being a coach doesn't mean anything. It doesn't mean he's perfect.

But the show isn't about the teams, it's about him, and Dauber, and Luther, but the characters of Dauber and Luther are now on Big Lots Commercials & SpongeBob, which means that it is a minimal part of the show. But he is still a Jerk--At least in the first four seasons... Read more
