Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh will be on TV Thursday night for a different reason than usual – appearing in a scripted comedy show.

Harbaugh plays himself in Thursday night’s episode of “Detroiters,” a Comedy Central about a pair of advertising executives working with local businesses.

In a preview clip posted to YouTube, Harbaugh is shown getting frustrated at his troubles playing a hybrid game of bowling and football. He explains that he cannot hit the pins due to “mechanics.”

Harbaugh appears to have above average comedy acting chops for a football coach not known for a sense of humor. Maybe “Saturday Night Live” will come calling for him to host at some point in the future?

The “Detroiters” episode airs at 10:30 p.m. ET.
