The two brothers did not stop there. Super Bowl XLVII featured the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. The two brothers became the first two brothers to play against each in a Super Bowl as well. The Ravens also won that Super Bowl. The Harbaugh Brothers are the most successful set as brothers as head coaches in NFL history. Jim is now the head coaching at the University of Michigan and John is still the coach of the Baltimore Ravens.
This feels like a good time to plug that the Sports on Tap is co-founded by two brothers. And you should check out our podcast.
