The show was created by Barry Kemp.

The stars are Craig T. Nelson, Shelley Fabares, Jerry Van Dyke, Bill Fagerbakke, Clare Carey, Kenneth Kimmins, Georgia Engel, Katherine Helmond (Who's the Boss, Soap), and Kris Kamm.

There was 9 seasons and 200 episodes.

The show aired for nine seasons on ABC from 1989 to 1997.

Craig T. Nelson is played the part of Hayden Fox, coach of the fictional Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles.

Jerry Van Dyke played Luther Van Dam and Bill Fagerbakke was Michael "Dauber" Daubinski were Hayden Fox's assistant coaches.

Shelley Fabares plays Hayden Fox's love interest "Christine Armstrong Fox". She is a television news anchor.

In the early seasons, Coach Fox deals with daughter's growing up. At that time she was a college coed. Her name was Kelly, played by Clare Carey. She dated and later married a theater mime named Stuart Rosebrock (Kris Kamm). Hayden hated him. He was weird and woosey. After 1993 the Kelly character left for a major ad agency job and was only seen occasional guest spots after that. The Minnesota State Athletic Director Howard Burleigh (Kenneth Kimmins) and his awkward wife Shirley (Georgia Engel) were close friends of Hayden and Christine.  

At the end of season 7 Hayden is offered a job with a fictional NFL expansion team called the "Orlando Breakers", Hayden agrees and takes his coaching staff with him for the final two seasons. The Foxes adopted a baby boy named Timothy (played by twins Brennan and Brian Felker). Many season 9 episodes focused on the couple's newfound joy of parenthood, as they had been unable to conceive a child together before they decided to adopt.

The show opening theme by J.A.C. Redford, which also served as the Minnesota State Screaming Eagles school song, bears more than a passing resemblance to the Minnesota March authored by John Phillip Sousa. The theme song was recorded by the Iowa State University Marching Band, and the band was also shown in the opening sequence of the show.]

The final episode of the sitcom aired on ABC on May 14, 1997. The last scene in the final episode featured the whole cast thanking the audience for nine years of the show, with cast member Jerry Van Dyke denying the series ending thinking the show must go on. But the cast and director finally tell Van Dyke that the show is truly over, with Van Dyke still denying the show's finale - that is until the lights go out and Van Dyke finally accepts that the show is completed.

The final episode also includes an epilogue showing that Dauber had stayed with the Breakers and become their head coach, which he won two back to back Super Bowl championships and went on to join the Monday Night Football announce team after he had retired.

Reruns of the show aired on USA Network from September 1993 until January 2008. It is unknown if it will pick the show back up or be moved to another network. As of January 1st, it is not scheduled to be shown in the near future by USA or any other network.

For season seven, ABC aired original episodes of the show on Monday night, before Monday Night Football, as part of a football-themed night. This was successful on the United States East Coast, where MNF games aired from 9:00 pm - 12:30 am, local time. However, on the West Coast, MNF games aired from 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm (with possible overtime), leaving some Monday network programming with no time slots. During this interval, the show was aired at unusual hours on the West Coast. For instance, Seattle ABC affiliate KOMO aired new episodes of the show on Saturday afternoons. Some fans have cited this time-slot displacement on the West Coast as a reason for low ratings in season seven. Coach was moved to Wednesday nights the following season.
