Jason Sudeikis, aka Ted Lasso, has reprised his short-lived stint as an "American coach in London" with the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

The character was originally created to promote NBC's airing of the English Premiere League on U.S. television last year. And this year, Ted Lasso is back.

Having been relieved of his coaching duties, Lasso found work as a Premier League commentator, offering his take on things like "relegation," "offsides" and his fellow pundits' British accents.

The new sketch promotes coverage of the Premiere League in the U.S. on NBC and NBCSN -- which will begin Saturday, Aug. 16.
