Coach Schneider is a Physical Education teacher at Springwood High School in Springwood, Ohio. He is the first victim in the Freddy's Revenge killing spree. He is the secondary antagonist of the second film as well as a victim of Freddy.
Known as being hard-nosed, he was known for having a stick up his ass, and very strict with his students, particularly Grady and Walsh. One day they were playing baseball in gym class, and the two boys got into a fight. Because of that, while everyone was playing basketball and having fun, he made them do pushups around the track. Another day, he overheard them badmouthing him, and made them run laps around the track. In his personal life, he was gay, although it was clearly not a secret, such as him hanging out at a gay leather bar called Don's Place. It was rumored that he likes pretty boys and this was confirmed by Jesse Walsh.
Appearance and Death
As he is about to have a drink, Coach Schneider appears from behind, wearing full S&M leather attire, and takes Jesse back to the school gym to run laps. Schneider makes Jesse run several laps around the gym, and then sends Jesse to the showers. As Jesse is showering, Freddy Krueger makes the gym/sports equipment come to life and then proceeds to beat Schneider and then two jump-ropes come to life and wrap around his wrists and drag him to the locker room showers. The ropes tie him to the shower pipes, and then he is stripped naked. A towel then starts whipping his butt and Jesse vanishes into the shower steam. Freddy emerges from the steam and rakes his claws down his back, killing him. The steam clears and Jesse is wearing the glove.
His soul was absorbed by Freddy and was released when Alice Johnson defeated him in the fourth movie. But due to being an antagonist, he did not go to the same afterlife place like the rest of the victims.
