Ted Lasso Wiki

Leslie Higgins is a character featured in the Apple TV+ show, Ted Lasso. He is Director of Communications at AFC Richmond and is seen as Rebecca Welton's assistant, being delegated tasks, such as when he had to arrange accommodation for Ted Lasso and Coach Beard when they arrived at Nelson Road Stadium.

Work Life[]

He is generally frightened of Rebecca, who blackmailed him into helping her cause Ted's failure, after revealing she was aware that Higgins helped her ex-husband, Rupert Mannion, see other women behind her back.

Higgins retained his role with Richmond relegated to the Championship. In a meeting of the “Diamond Dogs”, Higgins agreed that it was important that Dani Rojas see a sports psychologist to help him recover from the tragic event that left him traumatised. Dr Sharon Fieldstone was hired, and in order to give her space to work, Higgins gave up his office and set up work in the corridor outside.

Personal life[]

Though he and Rebecca had known each other for a long time, Higgins kept much of his personal life to himself. For instance, Rebecca did not know that Higgins played the jazz bass until Higgins quit. Likewise, Ted never learned Higgins' first name was "Leslie" until after Ted's first season at Richmond ended.

His children were also seemingly introduced to Keeley and Rebecca at the Richmond/Man City match. His sons, in approximate ascending order of age, are Terry, Kris, Dana, Stevie and Lindsay. Lindsay, the eldest, is an Anglican priest, but a "cool one" because, according to Julie Higgins, he was born out of wedlock.

Higgins is a member of the Diamond Dogs.
