Season 1 of "Coach Prime" is coming to Barstool Sports' YouTube and barstoolsports.com on Sunday, August 29th. I’ve been involved with production at Barstool for four and a half years and I can confidently tell you that this will be the most polished product we’ve ever put out.
We teamed up with SMAC Entertainment, hired a full crew, and shot for four months straight with some of the best-looking footage Barstool has ever seen. We have been editing our tails off (I don’t cuss when I know Coach Prime is reading) all summer. Think Hard Knocks x Last Chance U x Barstool Sports + DEION SANDERS.
It’s an all-access look at one of the greatest players and characters in NFL history in his first season as a college head coach and we follow Coach Prime's mission of leveling the playing field between HBCU's and Power 5 programs. We follow the stories of many of the players on the team including his two sons. I could go on forever but I promise you do not want to miss it.
There will be six total episodes that will air in a five-day period starting on Sunday, August 29th. There will be one episode a night from Sunday to Wednesday, and the final two episodes air on Thursday night. Jackson State then has their fall opener that Sunday (September 5th) against Florida A&M at Hard Rock Stadium, so you will be well-accustomed to the team by kickoff and can follow them all fall.
I’m already back in Jackson shooting Season 2, so make sure you’re following along with the games.
Can’t wait for you all to see it. Also it's Prime's birthday today ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY COACH!!!
