OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Ravens coach John Harbaugh will be inducted into the “Cradle of Coaches” at his alma mater Miami University next year.
Harbaugh’s team won the Super Bowl, beating his brother’s San Francisco 49ers 34-31 for the Ravens’ second NFL title. He graduated from the southwest Ohio school in 1984.
A bronze, life-size statue of Harbaugh will be added to the Cradle of Coaches display on a plaza outside Yager Stadium early next year, joining the statues of Earl “Red” Blaik, Paul Brown, Carm Cozza, Paul Dietzel, Weeb Ewbank, Ara Parseghian, John Pont and Bo Schembechler.
The statues honor Miami graduates who have been named a coach of the year, won a national or pro title, or been inducted into the college or NFL Hall of Fame.
