John Harbaugh already prank called his parents during their national conference call on Thursday. On Friday it was his brother Jim making a surprise call of his own.
Jim Harbaugh called into John Madden’s daily segment on KCBS 740, looking to get advice from the Super Bowl-winning Hall of Fame coach. From Cam Inman:
“What advice can you give me as first-time coach going to the Super Bowl?” Harbaugh asked.
“You’re a heck of a lot better coach than I ever was,” Madden answered.
“Bullcrap. Bullcrap,” Harbaugh responded.
“No, no. No bullcrap,” said Madden. “The job you’ve done there, and I say this when you’re not on here, is one of the all-time great coaching jobs.”
From there, Madden gave Harbaugh pearls of wisdom on Super Bowl preparations.
“I just know the team that complains the most usually loses,” Madden said. “The other thing I know is you haven’t done anything yet. The team that celebrates having gotten there the most usually loses a little focus.”
