Watch Jason Sudeikis Return as English Premier League Coach “Ted Lasso”

It was a year ago when NBC Sports looked to drum up further anticipation for the upcoming EPL season by creating a scenario in which an American football coach – Coach Ted Lasso (played by actor Jason Sudeikis) – was hired to be the new man in charge for Tottenham. With the new season scheduled to begin August 16, Coach Lasso is back at it again – this time being documented after an exodus from the Spurs after a six-hour tenure as the leader of the club. Featuring a Tim Howard cameo and a slew of cheeky references that the old ball coach can’t seen to grasp, NBC has another winner in this commercial spot.
