Hit The Floor: Dean Cain Spent His Entire Life Preparing To Play Coach Pete Davenport

On Hit The Floor Dean Cain plays Coach Pete Davenport, the former Los Angeles Devils star tasked with leading the city’s current crop basketball stars to greatness (and keeping them away from the dancers whenever possible). For the former Superman, landing the part is simply destiny: “I literally have spent my entire life preparing for this role,” Cain says, citing his stint in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills and lengthy contact list of professional athletes and front office execs as influential in how he prepared for the role.

Whether the Devils’ leader employs a laundry list of coaching cliches, or prefers to freestyle in the final huddle has yet to be seen. Hear more about Dean’s athletic background and tune in to the series premiere of Hit The Floor on Monday at 9/8 C!
