Ravens coach John Harbaugh will be inducted into the ''Cradle of Coaches'' association at his alma mater Miami University next year.

HAIL TO THE CHAMPS

Baltimore shows up to honor the Super Bowl champs and we have the best images.

Harbaugh's team won the Super Bowl, beating his brother Jim's San Francisco 49ers 34-31 for the Ravens' second NFL title. He graduated from the southwest Ohio school in 1984.

A bronze, life-size statue of Harbaugh will be added to the Cradle of Coaches display on a plaza outside Yager Stadium early next year, joining the statues of Paul Brown, Bo Schembechler, Weeb Ewbank, Ara Parseghian, Earl ''Red'' Blaik, Carm Cozza, Paul Dietzel, and John Pont.

The statues honor Miami graduates who have been named a coach of the year at the college or professional level, won a national college or NFL title, or been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame or the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

''To me, there is no greater recognition in coaching,'' Harbaugh said in a statement. ''To be included with these great men is something only dreamed about.''

When the Ravens won the Super Bowl, Harbaugh joined Ewbank and Brown as Miami alumni who have taken their teams to NFL titles. Ewbank won NFL titles with the Baltimore Colts and a Super Bowl title with the New York Jets. Paul Brown won NFL titles with the Cleveland Browns before the Super Bowl era.
