We all know that San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh will be facing his older brother John, in Super Bowl XLVII. However, what most of us did not know, is that Jim will also be going up against his oldest son, Jay Harbaugh.

Jay, currently serves as the coaching intern for the Baltimore Ravens, where his uncle is the head coach. His father Jim, has not had much communication with his son, as he prepares for the Super Bowl, making it hard on both him and his family. As the 49ers head coach had this to say during a Super Bowl Press Conference:

I’m really thankful and proud that Jay is doing what he loves to do, Jim Harbaugh said Friday from a stage with his brother. This week has been tough. I haven’t been talking to him or calling him. I’ve sent a few texts to let him know how I feel about him. I don’t want to get him where people are thinking I’m talking to him. I’ve heard he’s done a great job and that means the world.

For the first time in Super Bowl history, the brothers held a joint press conference, with significant differences in both personality and appearance. John wore a suit and provided elongated answers, while younger brother Jim, wore a long-sleeve t-shirt, khaki pants, while providing brief responses.

With the Super Bowl just two days away, it will be interesting to see how the Harbaugh’s deal with one another during pre-game, in-game, and post-game
