The kickoff has been cancelled in the proposed reboot of Craig T. Nelson’s coach, with plans for an updated version of the venerable sitcom reportedly axed by NBC.

As Deadline reports, NBC’s revival of Coach, which ran from 1989-1997 on an entirely different network, ABC, was initially given a 13-episode straight-to-series order, but the network later decided to scuttle the project over “creative differences.”;

Network response to the revived Coach, claims Deadline, “had been mixed, with some sources indicating that it felt dated.”;

The plan was to set the new series in the present, 18 years after the original show went off the air, with Coach Hayden Fox (Craig T. Nelson, reprising his iconic role) now retired until he’s called back into action to become the assistant coach to his grown son, who’s head coach at an Ivy League university.

While Coach may be dead on NBC, the reboot may find a home somewhere else. Deadline reports the show’s producer, Universal TV, is planning to shop the show around to other networks and streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu in hopes of securing a pick-up.
