Super Bowl 2013: A Tale of Two Harbaughs

Rob Carr

The Super Bowl will feature two brothers coaching against each other on Feb. 3. Here's a look at the two brothers who will be facing off.

When you turn on your television to tune in to the Super Bowl this year, you will see two teams led by coaches with the last name of Harbaugh: Jim and John Harbaugh will face off in the first ever brother vs. brother coaching showdown on the biggest scale in all of football.

John, 50, led his Ravens to take down the Patriots 28-13 on Sunday night, avenging their loss in the divisional round of last year's AFC Championship. He's seen plenty of success since taking over in 2008, but this will be the biggest moment of his career.

Jim, 49, will see if he can best big brother when Feb. 3 rolls around. The 49ers defeated the Falcons 28-24 on the road after coming back from a 17-0 deficit. His playing career was far more storied than his brother's, however, you have to believe he'll recognize the coming matchup as the most significant point of his football days as well.

The Ravens beat the 49ers 16-6 last season. That game marked the first time in NFL history that two brothers faced off as coaches. Stay tuned for the second edition of that historic meeting.
