According to the National Football Post, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh bought each of his coaches a replica of the Super Bowl trophy, which cost him a total of roughly $200,000.
The National Football Post has learned from multiple sources within the Baltimore organization that on June 18, the staff’s last day of work before summer vacation, Harbaugh presented each of his assistant coaches with a replica of the team’s 2013 Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy.
The authentic Vince Lombardi Trophy, which the Ravens claimed after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, is produced by jewelry icon Tiffany & Co. and is estimated to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $25,000-$50,000. The trophy is handcrafted from seven pounds of sterling silver and takes approximately four months to make.
Each replica is believed to have cost somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000, which means that Harbaugh could have shelled out well over $200,000 on the trophies for a coaching staff that currently includes 22 assistants.
Inscribed on each replica under the NFL shield is the following:
Super Bowl XLVII
AFC vs. NFC
Baltimore Ravens 34
San Francisco 49ers 31
New Orleans, LA
Harbaugh is a smart man. He understands that while he might be one of the NFL’s best head coaches he couldn’t have won his first Super Bowl without the rest of his staff working together. At the end of the day he’s going to get a nice contract extension from the Ravens after winning the Super Bowl last season.
