Bobby Finstock is a fictional character featured in the Teen Wolf franchise. He first appeared in the 1985 Rod Daniel comedy Teen Wolf where he was played by actor Jay Tarses. In the film, Finstock was the basketball coach of Beacontown High School. The character also appeared in the 1987 sequel Teen Wolf Too, this time played by Paul Sand. In the film, the character left his position at Beacontown High to take up the job of coach of the boxing team at Hamilton University. As with the first film, Coach Finstock found himself in the unenviable position of working with a star athlete who just also happened to be a werewolf.
A re-imagined version of Coach Finstock had a recurring role on the MTV television series Teen Wolf, which began airing in 2011. Finstock was played by Orny Adams and was the coach of the Beacon Hills High School lacrosse team. Adams' portrayal of Finstock showed him as an aloof and excitedly aggressive personality who showed little compassion for his players beyond their performance value. This version of Coach Finstock was introduced in the series' pilot episode, "Wolf Moon".
