Sport: Football
Accomplishments: Jim: 1995 Pro Bowl (player), 2012 NFC Championship (coach);  John: Three AFC North titles, 2012 AFC Championship

Did you know that the coaches in this year's Super Bowl are brothers??? In the run-up to Super Bowl XLVII, there will be an absolutely nauseating amount of time spent on the coaching matchup of Jim and John Harbaugh, brothers who have become two of the top coaches in the NFL. While Jim earned the nickname "Captain Comeback" as quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts and reached the AFC Championship game in 1995, both have achieved most of their notoriety in recent years after having great success with the Ravens (John) and 49ers (Jim). Not shockingly, they are the first set of brothers ever to coach against each other in the Super Bowl.
