Notably, Harbaugh was named 2011 NFL Coach of the Year by The Associated Press after leading the San Francisco 49ers to an NFC West division crown with a 13-3 record and making a deep playoff run to Super Bowl XLVII.

Prior to his coaching career, Harbaugh had a successful career as an NFL quarterback for five organizations, including the Chargers. He also played quarterback for the University of Michigan, where he finished his career with an impressive record and earned All-American honors.
