Harbaugh played defensive back for Miami (Ohio) in college.

To honor John Harbaugh's achievements by coaching the Ravens to a Super Bowl XLVII win, his alma mater, Miami (Ohio), will construct a bronze statue and induct him into the school's Cradle of Coaches Association.

This group includes Miami (Ohio) alums Earl "Red" Blaik, Paul Brown, Carm Cozza, Paul Dietzel, Wilbur "Weeb" Ewbank, Ara Parseghian, John Pont and Glenn "Bo" Schembechler. To become a member, a coach had to have attended Miami (Ohio) and go on to coaching excellence.

Harbaugh graduated from Miami (Ohio) in 1984 and played defensive back for the school's football team. Of the Cradle of Coaches members, only Harbaugh and Ewbank have won Super Bowl titles (Ewbank coached the Jets to a Super Bowl III upset over the Colts). Brown won NFL championships with the Cleveland Browns in 1950, 1954 and 1955 and Ewbank won an NFL championship with the Colts, ironically, in 1958 and 1959.

For Ravens fans living in Ohio, the school is inviting the public to attend the ceremony and admission is free. It will take place on April 19, with festivities beginning at 11 a.m.
