Jason Sudeikis is back as Coach Lasso in funny NBC Premier League ads

Last year, NBC enlisted Jason Sudeikis to help advertise the fact that the network would be televising English Premier League games for the first time. Sudeikis played Coach Ted Lasso, an American football coach who, for some reason, was named coach of Tottenham Hotspur. The bit was a success.

Now, Coach Lasso is back, parlaying his six-hour stint as Spurs coach into a analyst gig with NBC. It’s still pretty funny.

After spending the first 17 years of his Post career writing and editing, Matt and the printed paper had an amicable divorce in 2014. He's now blogging and editing for the Early Lead and the Post's other Web-based products.
