The Coach with the most
In his more youthful days.



Coach Z is the "coach" of Homestar Runner and the gang. He has a strong Upper Midwestern accent which sometimes gets him into trouble. He almost never says a negative comment to anyone. He often offers more encouragement than is needed; he says "You can't just rush into the score zone" so often that it has lost its meaning. He is a fan of hip-hop and rap music, particularly the Wu-Tang Clan. Coach Z has already released one single, "These peoples try to fade me," which was on Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits. His solo album is entitled "The Z Is All Up Ins", featuring the smash hit "Hip-Hop Dance". It has been implied that he has a crush on Marzipan, and has on several occasions left inappropriate messages on her answering machine, including one occasion where he was drunk. He seems to frequently make jokes and references about pants, as seen in super powers, lunch special, secret recipes and A Folky Tale. It's questionable whether he is wearing a green body suit or simply has green skin.

Bling-Bling indeed!
Coach Z with no hat?

{Page Title: Drop Down and Gimme 20!!} {Places: Coach Z's Locker Room}

COACH Z: {not quite looking at the camera lens, more looking at the person who is holding the camera} Is that thing on? {turns to the camera lens} Hey there, ho there! I'm the Coach! The Coach Z, I'd guess you'd call me. Or plain old Coach is fine, seein' as I'm the only one around, so, probably no one else would answer to that. You say "Hey Coach!", and I'd say "Yeah?" or..."That's me!" or..."Hoo-hah!" {waves his arms in the air} Any one of those. There's rumors flyin' around that I sleep in one of these lockers {gestures to the lockers behind him}, but uh, that's just not true. I usually crash on this bench here. {gestures to the bench behind him} My back's not in real good condition. {Rubs Back} And now, I'd like to perform my hip-hop single, "These peoples try to fade me." {holds up a microphone, begins to sing} A one-two, a one-two—!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {interrupting Coach Z} Sorry. We're all out of tape.
