Chargers LB Denzel Perryman Says Jim Harbaugh Reminds Him Of Will Ferrell

Los Angeles Chargers coach Jim Harbaugh has a very unique personality and that has one player comparing to an award-winning comedian and actor.

Chargers LB Denzel Perryman spoke to reporters on Monday and said that Harbaugh reminds him of Will Ferrell.

“I hope I don’t get in trouble for this, but he reminds me of Will Ferrell,” Perryman said Monday. “I don’t know if it’s the way that he speaks, his analogies and everything, but they really remind me of Will Ferrell.”

Perryman said that he hadn’t told Harbaugh yet but imagined Harbaugh would hear these comments and talk to him about it at practice on Tuesday. When asked which version of Ferrell Harbaugh reminds him of, Perryman said perhaps Ferrell’s acting in the movie “Step Brothers.” He joked that Will Ferrell in “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” might also get him in trouble.


“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 mind is Will Ferrell,” Perryman said. “I mean, I do take him seriously. I take everything he says seriously, though. But when he does joke around, I start cracking up in my seat.”

It seems like Perryman is really enjoying his new head coach.
