In addition to being a coach, he's a husband and father who finds himself learning hard life lessons. While he tells his students to stay honest and transparent, he hides his smoking habit until a heart attack becomes his reveal-all. He has to make the choice of following doctors orders to not coach until he heals. While doing this, he becomes closer to his family despite his sons anger at not having his father as his coach.
It's a well written story with plenty of football scenes. I'm not a sports fan, particularly about football, but even I enjoyed it. Even had some humor tossed in. It could be viewed as a family movie though be warned there are scenes where parental guidance is definitely suggested for violence and perhaps language. Otherwise a great movie.
