When it comes to football, the NFL is the world’s most competitive stage. That competition is even stronger for the Harbaugh brothers, San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh and Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh. Both coaches have their teams in their conference finals for the second consecutive year, after they both lost their shots at the Super Bowl last season.
The Harbaugh brothers are both widely regarded as some of the best coaches in the league, despite the fact that they haven’t been around the league for very long. John is finishing up his fifth season with the Ravens after succeeding Brian Billick, while Jim is finishing his second season with the 49ers following a long period of turmoil for the franchise.
Ask Jim or John what they think of how the other one coaches, and neither one of them could say a bad thing about their brother. Today, Jim gushed about the coaching job of his brother, reiterating a point that Jim believes he’s half the coach his brother is. Check out this video courtesy of CSNBayArea:
What these two brothers are doing as head coaches in the NFL is absolutely amazing. After spending time as a special teams and defensive backs coach in Philadelphia under Andy Reid, John took the Ravens head coaching job and has led them to the playoffs every year that he has been the coach. Jim is only in his second season after a run of tremendous success at the college level with San Diego and Stanford, but he’s developed a raw Colin Kaepernick into a budding star and has gone two-for-two in making the NFC title game.
Perhaps the only way to settle the debate of which coach is better is to see the two of them on opposite sidelines in the Super Bowl.
