NEW ORLEANS — Working separately, John and Jim Harbaugh guided their teams to the Super Bowl. They will be on opposite sidelines Sunday, John as head coach of the Baltimore Ravens and Jim with the San Francisco 49ers.
Imagine how effective they could be if working together.
At their joint news conference Friday, someone asked the brothers if they would consider teaming up if either should be forced out of his current post.
“No question about it,” John said. “We’ve had that conversation in the past. It just never really worked out timing-wise. I’d love to work for Jim. It would be the greatest thing in the world.”
Jim, coach of the San Francisco 49ers, said, “Definitely, I would work for him.”
Super Bowl tradition dictates that the coaches meet with the media separately two days before the Super Bowl. That custom was altered Friday because, after all, two brothers have never before coached against each other in the Super Bowl.
