Jim Harbaugh joins Ravens' John Harbaugh to form first pair of NFL head coaching brothers

With unique insight from his older brother John, Jim Harbaugh took a historic step into the NFL on Friday when he became the 18th coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

It was historic because there have never been two brothers serving as head coaches in the NFL before — John is in his third successful season with the Ravens. It was also historic because Jim Harbaugh recreated the path taken by Bill Walsh some 41 years ago — from the University of Stanford to San Francisco — when Walsh launched the 49ers' dynasty era.
