Daily Sports Smile: UNC coach Mack Brown does his best 'Ted Lasso' impression with locker room dance – USA TODAY

Who did the “Ted Lasso” better? Jason Sudeikis, who plays the title character on the Apple TV+ original series, or University of North Carolina football coach Mack Brown?
Brown’s moves came after North Carolina’s 63-61 win over Appalachian State and looked very similar to the moves by Coach Lasso.
Players opened up a hole for Brown, who is in his 14th season across two stints at North Carolina, to get down after his team’s thrilling victory. In the season opener, the Tar Heels saw their 20-point, fourth-quarter lead evaporate en route to a narrow win.
Sudeikis did his version of the dance in a pilot episode in late 2020 after the fictional Lasso took Wichita State football to a national championship. The actor performed similar moves during his tenure on “Saturday Night Live.”

It wasn’t the first time Brown broke things down in a celebratory locker-room dance either.
After UNC defeated rival NC State in 2019 — Brown’s first year back in Chapel Hill after 15 seasons at the University of Texas — the College Football Hall of Fame inductee busted out some moves.
