From 1989 to 1997, there were 9 seasons of the show starring Craig T. Nelson, Shelley Fabares, Jerry Van Dyke, and Bill Fagerbakke. Between 2006 and 2011, Universal released the first 4 seasons of the show as individual DVD season sets. Then, last September, Mill Creek Entertainment re-released the first two seasons of the series, for those who missed out the first time around. There was so much interest in those among the fans, that Mill Creek threw a Hail Mary pass...and scored the game-winning touchdown!
On September 12th
, MCE will release Coach - The Complete Series
on DVD! This 21-disc set brings you all 200 episodes, collected together for the first time. Priced at $69.98 SRP, even if you already own the first four seasons, it will be priced low enough to be worth it just for the new-to-DVD Seasons 5 through 9!! Here's the studio description, followed by the package art:
Team up with Craig T. Nelson in his Primetime Emmy Award-winning role as Hayden Fox, the curmudgeonly coach of Minnesota State University's Screaming Eagles football team, as he tries to navigate his way through the sports world, fatherhood and family life without dropping the ball.
Coach Hayden Fox revolves his life around leading a university football team...and although his passion for the game is incredible, this passion can only go so far. Tensions rise on the home front with a partner that doesn't share the same love for the game, thus leaving Hayden to escape his "dumb jock" stereotype and present a caring, loving side for his friends and family, and most importantly, his "little girl."
All 200 episodes across 9 high-rated seasons are available in their entirety for the first time ever, so there's no time like the present to get in the game for one of the most entertaining series ever! Craig T. Nelson (TV's Parenthood), Shelley Fabares (TV's One Day At A Time), Jerry Van Dyke (TV's The Middle), Bill Fagerbakke (voice of "Patrick" on SpongeBob SquarePants), and Clare Carey (TV's Maid To Order).
