Additional Information

Coach was the nickname of the final pyramid coach of the Caprica Buccaneers.

Coach oversaw high-altitude training of Samuel T. Anders and his fellow Buccaneers in the Caprican mountains during the Fall of the Twelve Colonies. Given the appropriate respect of his team members, he made a difficult shot from the sidelines during a training session between Kai and Anders.

While initially looked upon as the "leader" of the burgeoning Resistance, he was killed about nine days after the attacks when an assault on a Cylon repair shed, ideated by Anders after a popular war film, went horribly wrong. Kai and Coach attacked the trailer, preparing to throw Wheeler's improvised explosive device inside of a pyramid ball, into a hole made by an earlier explosive device inside of a Centurion thigh.

Coach is felled by the resulting explosion, after Kai passes him the ball and throws herself upon a lone half-damaged Centurion, ending her life before his (TRS: "The Plan").


  • A wedding band featured on his left ring finger can be seen. Whether or not he is survived by his partner is unspecified.
