Coach Taylor's wife, Tami (Connie Britton, "Nashville"), also had her hands full as Dillon's new high school principal: managing a shrinking budget, a lack of school supplies, decreased teaching staff and student issues, as well as a baby and teenage daughter, Julie (Aimee Teegarden, "Prom") at home. The Mc Coys befriended all the right people in town, except for Coach Taylor, who felt challenged and at times threatened by the power they wielded.Previously, the start of a new school year brought a wave of change to Dillon, such as the affluent Mc Coy family: Joe (D. Moffat, "Grey's Anatomy"), Katie (Janine Turner "Strong Medicine") and their freshman son and rising-star quarterback J. Additionally, the graduating senior class was one step closer to adulthood, riding out their last year of high school.This show became a phenomenon of mass proportions, leaving people waiting to link eyes with the (yes, THE) hottest dad and football players on TV, becoming even more popular than the movie that preceded.

Mc Coy had hope to be higher on the list, but when season four rolled around, I couldn't help but dislike him. Buddy Garrity (played by Brad Leland)Buddy Garrity confuses me.
After watching every season over three times, I feel more than qualified to write this article. Mc Coy and Joe Mc Coy (played by Jeremy Sumpter and D. Moffett)I put these two in the same number, because they're father and son, and they both suck. He is that character in every show that no one likes, but no one hates. She completely took advantage of Matt's love for her, and WHY WOULD YOU EVER DO THAT TO MATT (which also made me frustrated with him that he kept going back to her).

We saw actors come back, like Connie Britton and Brad Leland, when the movie resurfaced as a television show in 2006.
