Now, he's enjoying the pace of life in Shelter Bay, where he teaches high school physics. He still gets to blow things up, but as the school basketball coach he also gets to impart leadership skills. His latest minefield: fifteen-year-old Matt Templeton; and Matt's irresistible mother. Claire Templeton moved her troubled teenage son to the small town of Shelter Bay to escape the bad influences at his school in L.A.
