Glee = Coach Beiste's Domestic Storyline

Coach Shannon Beiste is a fictional character from the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee. The character is portrayed by actress Dot-Marie Jones, and has appeared in Glee since its second season premiere "Audition", first broadcast on September 21, 2010. Coach Beiste is introduced as female championship-winning football coach Shannon Beiste, brought in to make the McKinley High football team successful. Coach Beiste immediately comes into conflict with cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester and glee club director Will Schuester, though Beiste and Will eventually become good friends. In Beiste's first year, the coach successfully steers the team to its first championship. When the character returns in the third season, in addition to coaching football, Beiste co-directs the school musical and runs the elections for senior class president. Beiste's first boyfriend is Ohio State football recruiter Cooter Menkins, though Beiste initially faces competition from Sue for him. Beiste and Cooter eventually marry, and the coach later finds support from Sue after becoming the victim of domestic abuse, ultimately leaving and then divorcing Cooter. In the sixth season, Beiste comes out as transgender and undergoes gender confirmation surgery, taking on the new name Sheldon Beiste.
