It was previously reported that the Ravens staff would coach one of the Pro Bowl teams. Now that's become official.

Coach John Harbaugh announced on Tuesday that he and his staff will lead one of the two Pro Bowl teams when the NFL's annual all-star game kicks off.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>John Harbaugh said that he and the coaching staff will coach the Pro Bowl next week.</p>&mdash; Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) <a href="https://twitter.com/Ravens/status/555080194298355712">January 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

This year's game will take place in Glendale, Ariz., on the same field that the Super Bowl will be played on one week later.

The Ravens' staff is coaching in this game at the NFL's request since coach John Fox is no longer with the Broncos. The Dallas Cowboys' staff will coach the other team in the Pro Bowl.

The Pro Bowl will be in the second year of its new "unconferenced" format, which has two captains picking players to form teams instead of the traditional AFC-NFC matchup.
