September 1, 2017
BOARDMAN, Ohio – The Boardman Coaches restaurant is moving up the street to 708 Boardman-Canfield Road from its site at 714 Boardman-Canfield Road, and with it is bringing a full-service restaurant and bar, as well as jobs.

The Boardman restaurant will feature a full bar, full service menu and enough seating for 100 guests. Like its Poland restaurant at 9065 Springfield Road, Coaches in Boardman will install televisions and Keno, and will subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket for the football season.

The Champ declares Coaches a real contender, and we agree.
The Champ is Boxing Hall of Famer and Youngstown’s favorite son Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, and the contender is the burger at Coaches Burger Bar.
This month’s burger review selection came from the Champ himself. He eats there often, and we couldn’t resist an opportunity to sit down with Ray, talk boxing and Youngstown while enjoying a great burger.
Coaches is a sports bar for the entire family. There is local and national sports memorabilia adorning the walls, and when you walk in you first notice the wrap-around wooden bar with TVs positioned all around so you don’t miss any action from the big games.
