Miami University (OH) To Unveil John Harbaugh Statue This Weekend

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens head coach will be induced into the Miami University (OH) 'Cradle of Coaches'

At certain points of a game, John Harbaugh has been known to yell until he's blue or red in the face. This Saturday, the Ravens head coach will be bronzed.

Harbaugh has been bestowed the honor of being named into the Cradle of Coaches at his alma mater, Miami University (OH). In addition to this honor, a full-size bronze statue of Harbaugh will be unveiled outside of Miami's Yager Stadium and a mural featuring him will be unveiled inside of the stadium.

The Cradle of Coaches was established by Miami University to recognize those coaches with ties to the university and have received national recognition for their coaching at either the collegiate and/or professional ranks. Most members were inducted because they were named coach of the year or to the hall of fame either collegiately or professionally. For Harbaugh, leading the Ravens to a Super Bowl XLVII victory was enough to have him honored.

Harbaugh's coaching roots don't actually trace back to Miami University, but Harbaugh played defensive back while at the school.

Other members of the group include Earl "Red" Blaik, Paul Brown, Carm Cozza, Paul Dietzel, Weeb Ewbank, Ara Parseghian, John Pont and Bo Schembechler.
