New Girl

What Happened to Coach on New Girl?

Damon Wayans Jr. was hilarious as Coach on the New Girl pilot — especially when yelling at Jess (Zooey Deschanel), handing Schmidt (Max Greenfield) the d-bag jar, and brushing off Schmit’s insistent use of “bros.” So we were shocked when we tuned in to the second episode and he was nowhere to be found.

Instead, a failed basketball player named Winston (played by Lamorne Morris) had moved into Coach’s loft — and Coach’s place as the third member of the show’s male roommate contingent.

So, what gives? Turns out Damon is a little too good. His ABC comedy Happy Endings got picked up for a second season, so he had to leave New Girl to fulfill his contractual obligation to his first network. And instead of reshooting the pilot, FOX decided to bring Lamorne in for episode two.

Is Winston as funny as Coach? You tell us!
