It’s a show that’s caught the world by storm, albeit somewhat slowly.

Ted Lasso on Apple TV+ has become something of a cultural phenomenon after its 2020 release. Though it has long had critical acclaim — its haul of Emmy Awards is proof of that — it was just this year that it seemed that the populace really caught on. Now nearing the end of season two, fans have flocked to the fish out of water story about an American college football coach overseeing a Premier League soccer team in London without having ever coached that sport.

Of those who count themselves as fans, Michigan football’s Jim Harbaugh is one of them.

“It’s absolutely the best show on TV,” Harbaugh told WXYZ’s Brad Galli. “It’s right up there with — I’d put it up there with The Rockford Files, it’s that good. It’s the best show. If you haven’t watched that show — I watch it sometimes two or three times.”

So what makes it so good in Harbaugh’s eyes?

“Some of the the — it’s just so true, it’s just so real,” “Some of the lines, the dart scene — c’mon! There’s probably 50 more. Not as good as that!”

As Galli points out, Harbaugh and star/creator Jason Sudeikis are friends and there are certainly a lot of similarities, especially when it comes to the fictional coach’s wardrobe.

Ted Lasso airs on Apple TV+ with new episodes released on Fridays.
