Ray Lewis to Help Coaches In ‘Coaching Bad’ for Spike TV

Spike TV has brought together NFL legend Ray Lewis and anger management specialist Dr. Christian Conte to tackle the growing problem of coaches with uncontrollable anger issues in a new original series, “Coaching Bad.”

The show features nine coaches who have recognized that they need to take action about their combative behavior if they want to continue in the profession that they love.  The coaches, from a variety of different sports around the country, will move into a Coaching Center in Los Angeles for intense retraining and reconditioning, designed personally by Dr. Conte and Lewis.

During the program, various sports figures will lend their perspective on the negative effects of caustic coaching, with guest speakers including Chuck Pagano, Bill Romanowski and Glen “Big Baby” Davis.

Spike TV is thrilled to partner with one of the greatest players in NFL history in a compelling new series that will shine a light on the ever-growing issue of coaches and their anger issues,” said Sharon Levy, executive vice president of original series, in a statement. “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 has ordered eight one-hour installments of “Coaching Bad,” to debut in 2015.

Hayley Lozitsky, vice president, development at Spike TV will serve as the executive in charge of production, with John Irwin, Damian Sullivan and Richard Hall as executive producers for Irwin Entertainment.
