Coach: The Second Season

I had to read it twice to make sure but apparently this sitcom won Emmy Awards. Hard to believe. Not because it was so awful just that it certainly was not a stand out for me. Craig T. Nelson plays Hayden Fox who is the head coach of the Minnesota State University's football team. We follow him on the job, as he tries to deal with his college-age daughter and his romantic relationship with his girlfriend Christine (played by Shelley Fabares). A mild amount of chuckles ensue.
