So, we’re all geared up for Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) to make his big re-appearance on New Girl in season 3…but are the guys of New Girl all geared up? We’ve heard that Lamorne Morris’ Winston isn’t exactly going to be taking too well to Coach, but what about Max Greenfield’s Schmidt and Jake Johnson’s Nick?
Lamorne Morris himself told TVLine that we’ll not only be getting a little bit more of the “backstory” between Coach and Winston, but some insight into how Schmidt and Nick see Coach’s comeback.
…[Lamorne] Morris says that Damon Wayans Jr.’s [Coach's] “homecoming” will serve up “a lot of backstory” between Coach and Winston as well as “explain why he left in the first place, and where he went.” As for how Coach’s return affects the other guys, “I think Schmidt is going to be very competitive, while Nick is going to be very happy,” Jake Johnson told me. “Nick and Coach were old friends, so it’s going to be nice for Nick. But I bet Schmidt is going to have an oodle of issues with it.”
If you had to pick your own theory, why do you think Coach left, and where did he go?
