It’s time.

That’s definitely the theme when talking to Brendan Hunt, who plays Coach Beard in “Ted Lasso.” As in, it’s time for the show to wind down after its third season. At least in this version. Spinoffs are a possibility.

Hunt, a journeyman actor before “Ted Lasso” came along, co-created the show along with Jason Sudeikis (who plays Ted), Bill Lawrence and Joe Kelly. His character is a friend to Ted, as well as a sounding board and a kind of oddball savant.

Hunt talked about all of this recently, on the eve of the third — and possibly final — season premiere on May 15 on Apple TV+. He was goofy from the start.
