How can you not love Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler
), coach of the Dillon Panthers on Friday Night Lights
? He's a state championship winning coach who acts like a surrogate father to many of his players. He gets along great with his darling wife in what is often the most satisfyingly beautiful marriage on TV. And he's a dependable father to Julie, trying his best to relate to a teenage girl. Eric Taylor is the kind of guy everyone wants, as a father, a coach, a husband, a friend, or an anything.
