Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh returns to the small screen Thursday night.

Harbaugh enjoyed a cameo on the Comedy Central show, "Detroiters" — during an episode in which the coach participates in a charity event involving fowling, an increasingly popular activity that's a hybrid between football and bowling.

Decked out in his traditional work attire, including a blue hat with the maize block M and his Lululemon khakis, Harbaugh misses on three throws, becoming increasingly frustrated with each one.

"It's totally different mechanics," Harbaugh says after miss No. 1. "You think LeBron James would be good at Pop-a-shot?"

After another miss, Harbaugh throws down his hat; after another, he chucks it.

The latter made for some good fodder for Harbaugh's son, James Jr.

"Detroiters" is in its second season, and stars Sam Richardson and Tim Robson, both Detroit natives, as advertising executives. In Thursday's episode, "Cozying up to Little Caesars," the duo tries to win the business of the Detroit-based pizza giant.

The series is shot on location in Metro Detroit, with Thursday's episode being filmed at the Fowling Warehouse in Hamtramck. The episode airs at 10:30.

The series has drawn rave reviews, including from some legends of Hollywood.

Harbaugh is no stranger to TV cameos.

In 1996, Harbaugh, then a quarterback with the Indianapolis Colts, appeared on the popular "Saved by the Bell," portraying Screech's cousin.
