The sitcom Coach ran for nine seasons from 1989 to 1997, and while it was mostly about the coach of a college football team, Hayden Fox (Craig T. Nelson), it also featured storylines about his personal life, including his daughter Kelly Fox. Clare Carey played Kelly on Coach, and the character began the series as a college student reconnecting with her dad. The young actor remained on the sitcom through Season 7, though her role became less significant over the years.
But, Coach isn’t Carey’s only recognizable role. While she hasn’t been acting in movies or TV as much in the past few years, she has been on other popular shows. Now, Carey lives a very private life, though she’s still passionate about entertainment. Read on to learn more about the 54-year-old actor today.
After her time on Coach, Carey played regular roles in the series So Little Time, Jericho, Crash, and Aquarius. She also made guest appearances on series including Without a Trace, ER, Grey’s Anatomy, and Castle. Her most recent TV role was in The Magicians in 2019 and most recent feature film role was 2016’s Savannah Sunrise.
