Coach Beiste from Glee is getting a boyfriend
Inset: Beiste's new boyfriend. What a dreamboat!
Glee's high-school football coach Shannon Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) will take a break from shovelling pasta into her mouth in future episodes and start flirting with a new love interest instead.

Deadline reports that actor Eric Bruskotter — who's appeared in shows including 24 and Six Feet Under — has landed a part on the hit series as "Johnny, a football recruiter who comes scouting for talent at McKinley [High School], but finds he can’t take his eyes off the team’s gruff but big-hearted coach".

The role is recurring, meaning Johnny could potentially woo Beiste for a while.

Glee is often exploring its characters romantic lives, but this is the first affair for Beiste — unless you count that super-awkward plot in season two where she kissed Mr Schue, which frankly we'd rather just forget all about.
