From the inspirational Coach Carter to the foul-mouthed Patches O'Houlihan, Kidzworld looks at the top coaches from your favorite sports movies.

#5. Top Movie Coaches - Ken Carter; Coach Carter

Ken Carter takes a team of inner city kids who can barely read and whips them into model students and first class basketball players. The coach is super strict, he makes his players wear shirts and ties on game days and doesn't take any attitude. But he's also a pretty caring guy who makes his players realize that success in life means more than just having a sweet jump shot.
Classic Line - "I came to coach basketball players, and you became students. I came to teach boys and you became men."

#4. Top Movie Coaches - Mr. Miyagi; Karate Kid

Wax on, wax off. In this classic '80s movie, the elderly and wise Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) transforms a skinny kid named Daniel into a karate master. Mr. Miyagi passes on his martial arts secrets by having Daniel work for hours painting fences and waxing cars. But instead of getting a hand cramp, Daniel learns how to kick bully-butt, win the girl of his dreams and become a karate champion.
Classic Line - "Man who catch fly with chopstick accomplish anything."

#3. Top Movie Coaches - Morris Buttermaker; Bad News Bears

Morris Buttermaker (Billy Bob Thornton) manages to get the most out of a very sad baseball team in The Bad News Bears. The alcoholic Buttermaker isn't exactly a role model for 12 year olds - but he manages to put his beer down for just long enough to teach his Bears the importance of sticking together and playing as a team.
Classic Line - "You guys swing like Helen Keller at a pinata party!"

#2. Top Movie Coaches - Phil Weston; Kicking And Screaming

Will Ferrell is at his funniest as Phil Weston - a soccer dad, who takes winning way too seriously in Kicking And Screaming. Weston takes on the coaching duties of his son's soccer team and becomes completely dysfunctional when his team is challenged to a match against his overbearing and ultra-competitive father. After developing a dangerous coffee addiction, and a competitive streak of his own, Weston eventually settles down and learns that winning is less important than learning to play the game.
Classic Line - "What do you call it when you 'almost win'? Oh yeah, losing."

#1. Top Movie Coaches - Herman Boone; Remember The Titans

Herman Boone (played by Denzel Washington) coaches the first de-segrated high school football team in Virginia in Remember The Titans. Boone's motivational speeches on working together and always striving for perfection brings the team together for a memorable undefeated season.
Classic Line - "This is no democracy. It is a dictatorship. I am the law."

Guys should be able to do cheer without being bullied. Some of my best guy friends cheer with me and it just makes the whole experience that much better. Other guys should be jealous because they don't get to help girls stretch or lift them up 20 ft into the air hahaha
