For the better part of a decade, Bill Belichick has been the consensus pick as the NFL’s best coach. But that title might be passing on, at least according to John Harbaugh.
Harbaugh, who took home his first Super Bowl title with the Ravens’ 34-31 win over the 49ers on Sunday, isn’t putting himself on that pedestal, though. Instead, he’s talking up his younger brother, Jim.
“There’s no better coach in the national football league, as far as I’m concerned, than Jim Harbaugh,” John Harbaugh said after winning Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday night.
The elder Harbaugh followed up those comments during his news conference on Monday morning, too, reaffirming the lofty belief in his brother.
“Jim, he’s the best coach in football,” Harbaugh added. “He’s best coach in the National Football League. His record proves it.”
Since taking over as the 49ers’ head coach just last season, Jim Harbaugh has put together an unprecedented run in San Francisco. The 49ers have gone 27-9-1, including postseas

The 49ers held their final get-together, a light workout on the eve of Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens...
49ers head coach, Jim Harbaugh, went back to his days as the starting quarterback at the University of Michigan. Harbaugh and Collin Kaepernick were shown tossing the pigskin around during the blackout.
Saying Jim Harbaugh is an emotional guy is an understatement. We all see him throwing tantrums on the sideline. So why would we not think Jim would be going nuts if he thought the referees missed a pass interference call right at the end of the Super Bowl. The officials felt that Ravens defender Jimmy Smith’s contact with 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was minor.
What started off as a bit of a blowout, turned out to be one of the best Super Bowls in recent history.Both teams had their share of big plays, the Ravens more so in the first half, where they scored 28 of their 34 points.San Francisco came roaring back as they’ve done all postseason, scoring 25 points in the second half, falling just short of their sixth Super Bowl title.Each...
For those who follow college football (like we know all of you do), it’s no secret that this past season UCLA had quite a bit of success under a first-year, former NFL head coach in Jim Mora.
