Texas forever: Connie Britton wished her “ex tv husband” Kyle Chandler a happy belated birthday Sunday — and also shared her hope that he’ll pick up an Emmy at that evening’s awards show, where he’s competing in the Best Actor race for his performance on Netflix’s Bloodline. 

Britton and Chandler starred as Tami and Coach Taylor on Friday Night Lights throughout its five-season run from 2006 to 2011. “You’ll always be Coach to me,” she wrote on Instagram. “Wishing you birthday trophies tonight. #Emmys #cleareyesfullhearts.”

The beloved drama’s cast recently got together for a reunion at this past spring’s ATX Festival. See Britton’s Instagram post below, and find out where the show’s stars think their characters are now.
