Richard "Coach" Bittle

Bitty's father who is generally just referred to by his job title of "Coach." The Coach of Madison High School's football team, Coach meets Jack Zimmermann during his visit during the Fourth of July. During that time, Coach discussed Jack's new professional hockey career with him, stating that Jack's dad must be proud of him. Like his wife, Coach was unaware that he was meeting his son's new boyfriend, not his best friend.[23] After Jack gets the "A" with the Falconers, Bitty tells Jack that Suzanne and Coach are so proud of him.[24] Before one of Bitty's games, Coach sends him a good luck text, as does Suzanne. After Jack mentions how excited his parents are about their relationship, Bitty brings up how Coach and Suzanne had texted him good luck and his worries about telling them about his relationship with Jack. Bitty tells Jack that Suzanne and Coach had loved Jack when they met him, but worries that telling them the truth will cause his parents to change the way they look at them.[25] After Bitty scores in the game, he calls Coach and tells him the good news and that it means that Coach and Suzanne have to text him before games from now on.

Due to following Jack's career, Coach becomes "a hockey fanatic" according to Suzanne. During lunch with Aunt Judy, Coach went so far as to keep checking the Falconers score on his phone and turned the TV on the moment he got home in time to see Jack score an incredible goal. However, while Jack offered Suzanne and Coach tickets to the Stanley Cup playoffs, Coach has a conference in Alabama and can't make it.[26] At 10:25pm on the night the Falconers win the Stanley Cup, Coach excitedly talks with Suzanne about Jack's win and how Bitty might manage to make it out onto the ice. Suzanne calls out to her husband to tell him that Bitty's on TV where Bitty and Jack are kissing live on camera.[27] After Bitty ignores his mother's calls all night, Coach texts him at 2:48 in the morning to call Suzanne as she is worried.[28] When Bitty finally calls Suzanne, she makes it clear that while she and Coach had no idea that their son was gay or dating Jack, they both still accept him and want him to come home. When pushed for Coach's specific reaction, all Suzanne will say is that Coach loves Bitty and that he said that Jack played a good, strong game and that he hopes that they are enjoying all of the excitment.[29]
