#1:The Coach From the Stands

This dad isn't going to actually coach the team. No way. That's a waste of time. He'll offer his kid all sorts of “helpful advice- from the stands, though.

“Choke up on that bat!-

#2:The Creepy Coach


Within a year or two, he won't even be allowed within 200 yards of a school or park, so he needs to get all of his coaching done now. Sure, parents will wonder why a 35-year-old bachelor wants to coach the girls' swim team, but maybe he's just passionate about the backstroke.

Well, winning and mustaches.
