Coach Reboot: Coming to NBC for Some Reason!

by at .

Well, it's official: television is out of ideas.

For reasons that defy comprehension, NBC announced yesterday that Craig T. Nelson will reprise his role as Hayden Fox in a rebooted version of the sitcom Coach.

13 episodes of the program have already been ordered by the Peacock network.

They will find Fox returning to the sidelines after an 18-year absence in order to serve as the assistant coach to his son, who is now leading an Ivy League university in Pennsylvania.

Craig T. Nelson as Coach

The original series ran for nine seasons on ABC from 1989 to 1997, chronicling the head coach of the fictional Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles as he balanced football and family. 

It was pretty popular. But it's unclear whether a single viewer was clamoring for some kind of sequel to the sitcom.

Earlier this week, Fox announced that The X-Files will return as a six-episode limited event series; while NBC will also air Heroes Reborn in the near future.

Like we said: television is officially out of fresh ideas.

But, hey, the medium had a good run.
