Super Bowl 2013: Harbaugh brothers set to appear at joint press conference

Rob Carr

Jim and John Harbaugh will appear at a joint press conference during Super Bowl week -- something that has never been done previously by opposing coaches in NFL history.

Despite the fact that both Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh are downplaying the fact that they'll be coaching against each other in Super Bowl XLVII, the two brothers are set to do something that's never been done before in Super Bowl history -- appear at a joint press conference.

The Harbaugh brothers have faced off before in a regular season contest, during the 2011 season on Thanksgiving night. John's Ravens defeated Jim's 49ers that night, 16-6, in what was dubbed the Harbaugh Bowl.

Now, the two brothers will face off in a much more important bowl -- the Super Bowl.

New England Patriots fans will undoubtedly groan when they hear this news, as Pats fans were hopeful that Bill Belichick and the Patriots would advance to take on the 49ers in the Super Bowl. John Harbaugh and the Ravens ended those plans, however, with a 28-13 win in the AFC Championship game.

The joint press conference is scheduled for next Friday, during Super Bowl week.
