"That's very... overt."

Bubs and Coach Z's relationship is highly variable. Most of the time they are best friends, though occasionally they disagree and bicker, and sometimes they hate each other. More often than not, it is Bubs who hates Coach Z's foibles. As Coach Z himself describes it, they love, and hate, each other like brothers.
