Why Did They Kill Off Billy Baker

Billy Baker's death on the show "All American" was due to a bus crash. The makers of All American ultimately decided to kill Billy because showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll and Taye began having discussions that encouraged them to reach the conclusion that Billy’s All American Journey was over. Head coach Billy Baker (played by Taye Diggs) died saving a student after a bus carrying him and the South Crenshaw High School football team crashed on its way back from a scouting combine.
