As new Los Angeles Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh gets to know his team, his team is also getting to know him. And Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman has already developed quite a comparison for his new coach: actor Will Ferrell.

During a recent interview, Denzel Perryman was asked his first impressions of new head coach Jim Harbaugh. And he didn’t hold back in sharing the comparison.

“My first impressions of Harbaugh, I hope I don’t get in trouble for this, but he reminds me of Will Ferrell,” Perryman said. “I don’t know if it’s the way that he talks, his analogies and everything, but they really remind me of Will Ferrell. It’s just funny to me. It’s funny, but I know he means well, like everything comes from the heart. I feel like you have to have a sense of humor to understand his lines and gimmicks. But I love it. I love him as a coach and I love the direction he’s got us going in.”

Perrman was then asked if there was a particular Will Ferrell character from a movie that Harbaugh reminds him of.

“Just Will Ferrell in general,” Perryman said. “Step Brothers is a good one. I don’t know, man. He’s just giving Will Ferrell vibes. I don’t know if it’s his tone of voice or the way he talks in general, but the first thing that comes to my head is Will Ferrell. I mean, I do take him seriously. Everything he says, I take seriously though. But when he does joke around, I start cracking up in my seat.”

Hopefully, for the Chargers’ sake, Will Ferrell is a good football coach.
