Default Coach Hines

  • Ike Barinholtz ... Lankenstein, DeShazer (4 appearances/ 2 Appearances)

    Matt Braunger ... Careco (3 Appearances)

    Frank Caeti ... Tommy Hackenjos (3 appearances)

    Keegan-Michael Key ... Sandoval "Coach" Hines/Heinz (18 appearances)

    Keegan-Michael Key plays Coach Hines, full name Sandoval "Sandy" Hines, a bald, energetic, gum-chewing gym coach who can often be found yelling creatively worded threats at his students.

In Coach Hines's final appearance in episode 1416, it is discovered that Coach Hines is an heir to the Heinz Ketchup family fortune, and that he "never needed the money". So he changed his name to "Hines" so he could fit in better, get his athletics degree and start coaching. Coach Hines's goal in coaching was to have one student do the right thing one time and in the final sketch, when Yaminashi admits that he made up Coach Hines injuring him in a way so he could get the insurance money, Coach Hines considers his job done.

    This was Keegan's most recurring character.

    Keegan got his inspiration for Coach Hines from a gym teacher he had in high school.

The character of Coach Hines reminds me a lot of a gym teacher I sometimes encountered in the high school weight room. Or teacher was named Mr. Ramjug, and like Coach Hines he had a dark-skinned complexion as well as a balding head and a terrible demeanor towards what he considered unruly student behavior. A friend of mine, Scott used to have him for math class. Scott like many punks and otherwise bored male (and sometimes female) teenagers used to get high during a spare and attend class afterwards. He would sit at the back of class, and at some point in the school year, Ramjug singled him out for inattentiveness. He used to stop his lecture and ask openly of Scott if he was feeling alright, call him names etc. Scott used to make it worse by laughing nervously and answering "no" to any accusation Ramjug made about his general condition.

I remember in the weight room, (which I attended semi-regularily during lunch to get a better grade in gym) that at some point I started encountering Mr. Ramjug there. I didn't have him for any classes, and though my sister had spoken of him before, she'd never had anything bad to say. Anyway, the first thing I noticed about the guy, was that although he was relatively short, thin and harmless-looking, he really liked to push his weight around. He'd boast about stuff often, chide myself and others about things, and generally act like he was a real hero. I seem to recall that he always would usually wear bright blue or green sweats along with a tight t-shirt. And when he saw Scott and I in the hall one afternoon, he never stopped giving me grief about our friendship afterwards. As far as I'm concerned, Coach Hines is a very close representation of Mr. Ramjug.

Is there anyone else out there who also encountered a similar type of teacher in their high school years? I assumed that this might not be a mere coincidence but a more a common occurence perhaps (generally speaking).
