If you want Jim Harbaugh to show some emotion, don't ask about his brother or his parents.
Ask about his son.
While the Brother vs. Brother matchup dominated storylines leading up to Sunday's Super Bowl, John and Jim aren't the only Harbaughs involved. Jim Harbaugh's oldest son, Jay, is part of John's staff with the Baltimore Ravens. After serving as a graduate assistant at Oregon State, Jay went to Baltimore, where he's a coaching intern.
``I'm really, really thankful and proud at the same time that Jay is doing what he loves to do. That's a real blessing,'' Jim said Friday. ``And he's doing it with the Baltimore Ravens, a tremendous organization with great coaches around to mentor him and teach him, especially John being there. I hear he's doing a phenomenal job, which I'm really, really proud of.''
As he continued talking, the terse coach sounded like any other father.
``This week is tough,'' Jim Harbaugh said. ``I haven't been talking to him or calling him. I've sent him a few texts just letting him know how I feel about him - I don't want to give reason for people to think I'm talking to him.
``I'm really proud of what he's doing. I've heard he's done a great job and that means the world.''
