Jim Harbaugh's 49ers to play John Harbaugh's Ravens in 2011
Jim Harbaugh's first season as an NFL coach will likely include a matchup against his brother.
The Stanford head coach, expected to leave the university on Friday to join the San Francisco 49ers, is the brother of Baltimore Ravens field boss John Harbaugh.
The Ravens are scheduled to host the 49ers next season in Baltimore.
It's a once-a-quadrennial matchup of the two teams that comes because the AFC North draws the NFC West next season in the NFL's inter-conference schedule rotation.
No date for the game has yet been announced. The NFL schedule is normally released in April, although with a potential work stoppage looming in March the date of the schedule release could be in flux this season.
But a matchup of Harbaugh brothers could be an attractive game for a national television spot.
