Coach is one of four playable Survivors in Left 4 Dead 2
. He's the eldest of the Survivors, with his experience as a high school football coach giving him authority. (Much like Bill
in Left 4 Dead
) Though, he retains a very optimistic attitude. His face model is Darnell Rice and his voice actor is Chad Coleman
A native of Savannah, Georgia
, where the beginning of the game takes place, Coach was a defensive lineman in college. However, a knee injury ended his career, and he went back to his hometown to teach health at his local high school and coach his local high school football team (as a defensive coordinator) until the infection spread to his town.
Coach has a lot in common with Ellis
, such as appreciation for the Midnight Riders
and Jimmy Gibbs Jr.
He is friendly and patient with both Ellis and Rochelle
. However, he doesn't appreciate Nick
's sarcasm and pessimistic attitude. (Though, as the campaigns progress, they become less hateful towards eachother) He doesn't have much interaction with the original Survivors from Left 4 Dead in The Passing.
