Everyone knows coaches are important, and we certainly spend enough time talking about them and second-guessing their every move. Still, the majority of the time, it’s the players who make the highlight reels.

Every once in a while, however, a coach will do something on the sidelines that gets our attention. Maybe it’s berating a player, maybe it’s making a funny face, or maybe it’s going ballistic on the refs. Whatever the case, when a coach does something to get noticed during the game, chances are it’s extremely amusing. And to prove it to you, here are 27 awesome animated GIFs of coaches providing some serious entertainment.
