The Premier League returns on August 16 and once again NBC and NBCSN will be providing comprehensive coverage.  After getting his start in American football, coach Ted Lasso took his talents to the EPL as the coach for Tottenham Hotspur, worked on the matchday set to provide commentary of games, and is now back in the US of A coaching a youth team hoping to return to England.

And the video ends with him getting the call to coach at Lie-chester…where he is quickly informed it is pronounced ‘lester.’

Coach Lasso first took his gridiron talents to England last season as NBC prepared for their inaugural season covering the league.

The Premier League campaign kicks off on August 16 and there is still time to get officially licensed gear from your favorite team at WorldSoccerShop.com.
