When Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh face off in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, it will be the first time that brothers have ever opposed each other as coaches in a championship game. It has never happened in any of the four major professional sports leagues -- the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League.
