When Jim and John Harbaugh coached against each other last season, it was the first time in NFL history that two brothers faced off as head coaches. And a lot of media attention was given to that storyline.
Jim and John Harbaugh will coach against each other once again, this time in the Super Bowl, after San Francisco beat Atlanta and Baltimore defeated New England in the NFL's conference championship games. And if you thought the Harbaugh vs. Harbaugh story was given a lot of ink for a regular-season game last season, just wait for this two-week lead up to the Super Bowl.
Baltimore, led by John Harbaugh, beat New England 28-13 in the AFC championship game. Jim Harbaugh led the 49ers to a 28-24 win over Atlanta for the NFC title earlier in the day.
While that angle will get a ton of a attention, it's deserved. It is an amazing story that not only did two of the 32 people in the world who coach NFL teams grow up in the same household, they're now both at the top of their profession and will lead their teams into the season's ultimate game.Read More »from HarBowl!
