The follow-up series, which will again star Craig T. Nelson as Hayden Fox, picks up 18 years later when Hayden interrupts his retirement to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.
According to Deadline, Jerry Van Dyke may also guest-star on the revival as assistant coach Luther Van Dam. Coach will debut at midseason.
