Coach is Leaving New Girl

Some sad Television news was announced today that New Girl’s Damon Wayans Jr. will be departing the show after the end of this fourth season. Wayans Jr. plays the funny overly masculine character Coach, who was in the show’s first epiosde, left when it was announced Happy Endings would be continuing, but returned to star on New Girl when the show was cancelled.

Wayans Jr. was only signed for a one year deal as a series regular this season and does have the ability to walk away, but Coach will still be featured in every episode for the remainder of the season. It’s sad to see Damon leaving New Girl considering how much fun his character is and the development he was beginning to receive, but the actor must have other plans for his future and want to pursue other options.
