Ravens coach John Harbaugh will be inducted into the “Cradle of Coaches” association at his alma mater Miami (Ohio) next year.

Harbaugh's team won the Super Bowl, beating his brother Jim's San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, for the Ravens' second NFL title. He graduated from the southwest Ohio school in 1984.

A bronze, life-size statue of Harbaugh will be added to the Cradle of Coaches display on a plaza outside Yager Stadium early next year, joining statues that include Paul Brown, Bo Schembechler, Weeb Ewbank and Ara Parseghian.

The statues honor Miami graduates who have been named a coach of the year at the college or professional level, won a national college or NFL title, or been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame or the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“To me, there is no greater recognition in coaching,” Harbaugh said in a statement. “To be included with these great men is something only dreamed about.”
