Coach Franklin is a male-to-female transsexual coach at John Adams High. She got a sex-change in the summer before Season 3 began. While trying to convince Topanga saluting is in, Cory salutes to her in the cafeteria.
She got the school Film Society to show her favorite film, Paint Your Wagon, a cowboy musical. Unfortunately for her, Eric tried to replace it with a horror film. Feeny found out, and the show was cancelled.
