New Los Angeles Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh held his introductory press conference Thursday after the franchise handed him a record-breaking contract.

Like everything with Jim Harbaugh, entertainment was not missing from the press conference. He referenced a hope of winning multiple championships while throwing his support behind star wide receiver Keenan Allen, among other players.

Harbaugh’s presser also included a few awesome moments.

First off, he had an awesome back-and-forth with Jim Hill of KCAL fame in Southern Calfornia. The two exchanged pleasantries about who is an actual legend.

As many of you likely know, Hill is the lead sports anchor at KCBS-TV in Los Angeles. He is a former NFL player who suited up with the then-San Diego Chargers, Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns.

Hill started at KCBS in 1976 and moved on to the NFL on CBS in 1980. He’s since been a fixture in Southern California. Apparently, Harbaugh knows all about him.

Harbaugh made even more fans when he referenced the legendary show “Ted Lasso” to conclude his presser on Thursday.

“There are some things I copy from Ted Lasso. I try to emulate Ted Lasso in a lot of ways,” Harbaugh said. “I have a great story about how I met Jason Sudeikis. There is a life lesson in every one of those episodes. Piece of advice, if I may, watch the Ted Lasso show.”

Not only are the Chargers getting a championship head coach, but they are also bringing in one heck of a character. Fans in Southern California should just sit back and enjoy the ride.
