Ray Lewis to host show about coaches with anger issues

Getty Images

In news oozing with irony so obvious it’s not worth spilling the electronic ink, former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis will host a new show about coaches with anger-management issues.

Coaching Bad will debut on Spike in the first quarter of 2015 with an eight-episode season.  Lewis and Dr. Christian Conte will work with nine coaches who recognize a need to change their “combative and often bombastic ways.”  (And by bombastic, that may or may not include exaggerated, self-aggrandizing introduction dances.)

“Who better than Ray to bestow insight and wisdom to these coaches after his storied career as a leader on and off the field during his playing days with the University of Miami and Baltimore Ravens?” Spike TV executive V.P. of original series Sharon Levy said in a press release.

And with that, we’ll defer further comment to the various commenters. Including but not limited to PFT Commenter.

    You must really hate the Ravens.

    I don’t get it, Lewis seems like a great selection for this.

    This seems to be the theme of the Ravens franchise.

    The only relevant team that wears purple is the Minnesota Vikings.

    3rd best winning percentage in NFL History.

    Truth is stranger then fiction.

  6. Heretopissuoff says: Aug 4, 2014 4:33 PM

    @thepftpoet even if that’s true prob not, no superbowls to show for it
    Khalil Mack>Clowney and Barr

    Wouldn’t Dennis Green have been better?

  8. donny1rodriguez says: Aug 4, 2014 4:33 PM

    The guys killed in Atlanta were known gang members and convicted felons. A fight went bad and somebody pulled a knife. Of course it was somebody in Ray’s entourage but no way did Ray stab anybody. He has done nothing but been an ideal citizen and member of the Baltimore community since then. Looking forward to 2018 when he goes to Canton and hopefully Art can join him.

  10. bigbenownsthenfl says: Aug 4, 2014 4:37 PM

    I remember when joey porter went to the ravens bus to fight ray lewis and lewis wouldn’t get off the bus!! #sissy

  11. thepftpoet says: Aug 4, 2014 4:37 PM

    Anthony Barr > Ryan Shazier, C.J. Mosely.

    NFC North > AFC North


  12. cowboysmb3dw28 says: Aug 4, 2014 4:39 PM

    Ray Lewis seems perfect for this. Charismatic guy with a long, hall of fame career under his belt. It could be a pretty entertaining show!

  13. tvjules says: Aug 4, 2014 4:42 PM

    Well heck… maybe Jerry Jones should host a show about the smartest and most successful GMs in NFL history.

  14. sdsmooth says: Aug 4, 2014 4:44 PM

    The comedy just writes itself with the Baltimore Ravens.

    Am I reading “The Onion”?

  15. hjb99992013 says: Aug 4, 2014 4:46 PM

    OJ Simpson would have been a better host

  16. barneyrumble says: Aug 4, 2014 4:47 PM

    Let’s see:
    Pot calling the kettle black
    Fox guarding the hen house
    Jason Voorhees Day Care Center
    Ray Lewis giving advice on behavior!

  17. milkmandanimal says: Aug 4, 2014 4:47 PM

    So they’re just going to follow Greg Schiano around with a camera for two months?

  18. gayforbrady says: Aug 4, 2014 4:49 PM

    Wes welkers wife was right on ray Lewis.

  19. thestrategyexpert says: Aug 4, 2014 4:50 PM

    Well I have been asking for more football educational programming, ask and ye shall receive.

  20. amaf21 says: Aug 4, 2014 4:51 PM

    This will be preceded by Ray Rice’s new couples therapy show.

  21. chris3141084 says: Aug 4, 2014 4:52 PM

    This is going to blow up in his face. He won’t be able to dodge the media pressure.

  22. gayforbrady says: Aug 4, 2014 4:53 PM

    If Tony dungy had to work with Josh freeman he would be angry too.

    Btw freeman got $3 million more after he left the bucs. His agent is a genius. His last game was the best gift he could give us fans. The hope that we could also play in the nfl and perform the same or better.

  23. rollsieboys says: Aug 4, 2014 4:58 PM

    and for those who defend the convict, the man SETTLED out of court w the victims of the families…

  24. yohochecko says: Aug 4, 2014 4:58 PM

    Ray Lewis didn’t kill anyone. He just drove the getaway car and obstructed the investigation into the murders. Wait… “just?”

  25. drunkwino says: Aug 4, 2014 5:00 PM

    If Ray is anything like the gibberish spouting lunatic on this show like he was in a pre-game huddle, then this might be one of the most entertaining shows ever.

  26. johnnyballsack says: Aug 4, 2014 5:02 PM

    Another show that is debuting is former coach Tony Dungy interviewing ex-Linebackers who have murdered people called “Killer Backers”.

  27. mogogo1 says: Aug 4, 2014 5:05 PM

    Ignoring the irony for a moment, what coach would agree to go on a show to talk about their anger issues? “Hey, send your sons to play for me, the angry guy from TV.”

  28. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Aug 4, 2014 5:05 PM

    This crystallizes my immediate sentiments upon reading that headline: “In news oozing with irony so obvious it’s not worth spilling the electronic ink, …”

    Now, that was good!

  29. winningisabrees says: Aug 4, 2014 5:05 PM

    Man, you just make this stuff up.

    Ray Ray White Suit

  30. sonoco says: Aug 4, 2014 5:08 PM

    I would imagine Tom Cable will be front and center?

  31. chaney13 says: Aug 4, 2014 5:11 PM

    Maybe his co host could be Ndamukong Suh

  32. theageofquarrel says: Aug 4, 2014 5:11 PM

    Ray Lewis starring in Murder,He Helped

  33. si1m says: Aug 4, 2014 5:14 PM

    The best part about being a Ravens fan is seeing how mad their mere existence makes everyone. It makes being a winning franchise like 10 times better.

  34. Steeler's Didn't-but-Will-eventually says: Aug 4, 2014 5:26 PM

    This show will fail, but Ray Lewis will probably be the lone bright spot. It’s just a really dumb premise for a TV show.

  35. sminco123 says: Aug 4, 2014 5:37 PM

    So many great comments.
    Jon Gruden? or would he suck up to them as well?
    Ray, no Saint but seems to changed his life. Who the hell wants to fight Joey Porter?
    johnnyballsack…. brillant!

  36. jimjets says: Aug 4, 2014 5:39 PM

    I hear the murder channel was also going to offer him a show about being involved in murders and getting off, but he was advised to take this instead!

  37. scw1993 says: Aug 4, 2014 5:59 PM

    joeflaccoallday :

    everyone’s been picking on the raven’s for 5 whole days now, wehhhhh wehhhhhhh wehhhhh, we never did that to the Steelers, the Bengals, the Browns, the Patriots, the Saints, the Hawks, 49’ers, or any other teams, weh weh you guys are all mean to us!!

  38. therealtruth210 says: Aug 4, 2014 6:55 PM

    Ray Lewis is also great at have a lot of babies momma’s. Why not do a show about that?

  39. abninf says: Aug 4, 2014 7:00 PM

    The bloody suit, Ray Ray. Where did it go? Silence says everything. I boycott everything related to that fake Christian.

  40. officialgame says: Aug 4, 2014 7:02 PM

    So if the coach shows anger Ray stabs him to death resolving the issue. Works for me.

  41. revren10 says: Aug 4, 2014 7:38 PM

    He also gives advice on “how to get away with Murder”

  42. bubblehead22 says: Aug 4, 2014 7:53 PM

    Really? Ray Ray? Where’s the white suit?

  43. fearthehoody says: Aug 4, 2014 8:30 PM

    Please! Please, have him wear a white suite

  44. drewzducks says: Aug 4, 2014 9:33 PM

    Angry coaches. Stick this fraud in a room with Robert Montgomery Knight and inly one man would walk out. The man with the plaid red sports coat.

  45. ncfloyd says: Aug 4, 2014 9:55 PM

    “Storied career as a leader”. So either he told his buddies to kill the other guys and they did, following their leader or he told them not to and they rejected his great leadership.

  46. rcali says: Aug 4, 2014 10:06 PM

    Still can’t believe ESPiN gave him a gig. They regulary suspend people for opinions they don’t like. Being a part and witness to an open murder investigation, come aboard!

  47. ravens2xworldchamps says: Aug 4, 2014 11:39 PM

    Ray Lewis: G.O.A.T.


  48. laserw says: Aug 5, 2014 4:45 PM

    Should Ray Lewis be interviewing guys who beat murder raps? He would have first hand knowledge.

  49. guitarkevin says: Aug 6, 2014 9:36 AM

    I bet most of you would love a real life Hunger Games

  50. canedaddy says: Aug 6, 2014 3:19 PM

    Ray is inarguably the greatest leader in NFL history, and has always displayed a great temperament on and off the field. This is why so many players turn to him for advice and inspiration.

    I don’t know if the show will be any good, but no one was more credibility in advising coaches on how to get the most out of their players without losing their cool.
