In yet another interesting twist to Super Bowl XLVII, it has been revealed that an intern for the Ravens is none other than the son of Jim Harbaugh, who is head coach of the 49ers and brother of Baltimore coach John Harbaugh.

Jay Harbaugh, the oldest son of Jim, is at the Super Bowl working for the Ravens, where his boss is his uncle. Jim Harbaugh says he’s proud of his son but also trying to stay away from him this week because he understands that Jay’s job is to do everything he can to help the Ravens beat the 49ers.

“I’m really thankful and proud at the same time that Jay is doing what he loves to do.

John being there and hiring him, I hear he’s doing a phenomenal job.

This week I haven’t been talking to him or calling him or anything — sent him a few texts just to tell him how I feel but I don’t want people thinking I’m talking to him about the game. I’ve heard he’s done a great job and that means the world.”

John Harbaugh had this to say about his experience working with his nephew.

“I’m appreciative that Jim allowed Jay to come out.

Maybe that will be our edge, maybe it’ll be Jay. He’s really good. He’s a hard-working guy and he’s excited about the game and competing.”

Jay works with the Ravens’ video staff and the strength staff. And on Sunday, he’s doing everything in his power to make sure the Ravens beat his dad. This should make for one hell of an awkward post game dinner if you ask me.
