COACH OF THE YEAR is a rousing sports comedy about an unconventional coach who guides an underdog team to victory. Set against the high-spirited world of high school swimming, the film stars Harris Doran, Melissa Archer, Chris Ceraso, Paten Hughes, James McCaffrey, Kevin Brown, and Edward Herrmann, appearing in his ultimate onscreen role. In his feature film debut, award-winning writer/director David Stott enlivens the movie with an unusual degree of technical and emotional authenticity. The story draws on his extensive swimming and coaching experience and the events depicted in his film, even those that seem too good to be true, are based on his own life and experiences.

Set in 1997, COACH OF THE YEAR centers around Jack Wright, a perpetual undergrad who has long since abandoned the world of swimming to pursue a career as a stand-up comic. Following a scathing review of Jack's latest gig, Jack's father, himself a successful coach, loses patience with his son's misguided goal and forces him to take a coaching job at a local school.
