* {{Crossover}}: In 1997, Creator/{{ABC}} forced a crossover stunt on this and the other Wednesday night sitcoms - ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'', ''Series/{{Ellen}}'' and ''GraceUnderFire''. Titled "Viva Las Vegas," the idea was that characters from the four shows would be in UsefulNotes/LasVegas for different reasons and encounter each other. Only a couple characters from each series did this, however, and they amounted to [[TheCameo cameos]] at best. This series' contribution was "Viva Las Ratings" - [[BitingTheHandHumor mocking the network's stunt]]. Notably, Craig T. Nelson didn't support doing this, so Hayden did no crossing over. Luther wound up doing so instead - running into Drew and getting into a memorabilia bidding war with Mimi.

** The Orlando Breakers are a clear expy of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who joined the NFL in the same year the ReTool took effect. The Breakers, like the Jaguars, surprisingly make the playoffs in only their second season, and play the Buffalo Bills in their first playoff game. Also, one episode has the Breakers' owner plotting to move the team to Los Angeles because of low attendance.

* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: It's done in a largely unique way, Hayden is fully aware that he can come across as a jerk and just sort of accepts that he is not going to get along with everyone. As a college football coach he has to put on a DrillSargeantNasty persona on a frequent basis but he is rarely malicious and fully capable of being a mature adult when things don't go his way.

Added DiffLines:
* {{Dramedy}}: Has shades of this depending on the episode. The show juggled the line between DomCom, WorkCom and Singles Comedy, along with a healthy dose of mid-life crisis thrown in. It was not afraid of having more pensive and emotional stories, or ending an episode on a serious note. One in particular is when Stuart tells Kelly he is leaving her, the episode ends when Hayden asks her what is wrong and her sobs can be heard over the credits.

Added DiffLines:
* PositiveDiscrimination: Hayden learns that a current member of his team is gay, which leads to the discovery that previous players were also gay and kept that information from him. All of whom were excellent players. Terry, the current gay player, is a hard working and level headed kid who ends up putting Hayden in his place about passive-aggressively singling him out during practice after learning he was gay.
