Christopher Coffey just has teaching in his genes, evidently

You may recall, in the early years of "Dallas," that our little gal Lucy Ewing attended college. Her granddaddy Jock's alma mater, it was -- Southern Methodist University. And at that fine institution of higher learning, Lucy developed a fascination with her professor, Greg Forrester.

Christopher Coffey was appropriately cast as Forrester, because now, years later, guess what he's doing? He's teaching! BRBTV connected with Coffey while researching the print edition of "Destination: Dallas," and you can read our interview with him there (see last Friday's post). But we also like to keep up with what he's doing from time to time, in his role as a successful behavioral coach and workshop leader.

Coming up on Coffey's agenda are some March workshops on the UCLA campus. Specifically, he's teaching "Leadership Styles for Influencing Others" and "Coaching: Help Successful People Get Better." You can learn more about Coffey and his UCLA courses here:

Pretty good stuff. We wish him well.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: John Schneider, our own Bo Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard," will do some promotional work for the Athens, Georgia-based Zaxby's restaurant chain. You can read more about it at Ironically, one of the other celebrities who'll be doing the Zaxby's campaign, "American Idol" Season Three runner-up Diana DeGarmo, is from Snellville, Georgia, the city Schneider originally claimed he was from ("Snail-ville," he said with a drawl) when he auditioned for the role of Bo as a young'un.
