In his young head coaching career, John Harbaugh has already led the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl championship and a few NFL playoff appearances. Is this enough to get him a statue outside of the stadium? Probably not. However, Harbaugh was given one by his alma mater, Miami (OH) on Saturday.
Harbaugh was honored by the school by being inducted into their cradle of coaches, an honor that Harbaugh was overwhelmed by.
“I don’t think there’s a bigger honor in coaching. A lot of people don’t understand that, but once you take a look at it, you understand it and it means a lot,” Harbaugh told the Baltimore Sun. “I just feel overwhelmed and stunned a little bit that people would take the time and come [out] and it’s something that they want to be a part of. It means more to me than you could ever express.”
His brother, 49ers head coach Jim, even chimed in with how proud he was of his sibling.
“It’s always been a pattern of success for my brother. There have been a lot of proud moments but I’ve never been more proud of him than I am today.”
