Glee to Coach Tanaka: Laters!

Say bye-bye to Coach Tanaka! Actor Patrick Gallagher, is not expected to reprise his role as football coach Ken Tanaka in the next season of the hit show.

Actress Dot Jones is joining the cast as William McKinley High's new football coach, Shannon Beiste, but now we know she was hired to replace Coach Tanaka.

According to TV Guide, Coach Tanaka was written off the show "after failing in his attempt to marry Emma."

The news shouldn't be too upsetting for Glee fans because his character definitely ran out of steam by the middle of the first season.

Are you sad to see him go?
