Even if you've never played sports, you have to appreciate the wisdom and motivation that comes from fictional sports coaches. Whether in film or television, we've all been inspired by that one scene where the coach makes a last-minute speech to help rally the spirits of the losing team and inspires them to do better.
We've all wished we were in that locker room, and we’ve probably all wished we had such an inspiring coach to look up to. From baseball to football to hockey and beyond, no team in history would be worth remembering if it weren't for the head coach. That's why we're listing all the fictional sports coaches in movies and TV. Whether you prefer Coach Eric Taylor in Friday Night Lights, Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid, or Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks, here’s your chance to rank your favorite sports coaches.
