Harbaugh's alma mater, Miami (Ohio) University, will induct him into the school's Cradle of Coaches Association. The induction, which is scheduled to take place in early 2014, will include the unveiling of a statue and a spot on the Cradle of Coaches mural, located at Yager Stadium.
Harbaugh will join a long line of coaches who have made their way through Oxford, Ohio, including: Paul Brown, Weeb Ewbank, Ara Parseghian and Bo Schembechler.
"Miami is a very special place and anyone who played or coached at Miami knows that the Cradle of Coaches is a great honor," Harbaugh said in a statement. "To me, there is no greater recognition in coaching. To be included with these great men is something I only dreamed about."
The Cradle of Coaches is a pretty exclusive club, the school only honors 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 have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame or Pro Football Hall of Fame, according to the AP.
Harbaugh is the third Miami graduate to win an NFL title. Ewbank and Brown also won titles as NFL coaches. Ewbank won two with the Baltimore Colts (1958-59) and Super Bowl III with the Jets, while Brown won titles with the Cleveland Browns in 1950, 1954 and 1955.
Harbaugh isn't the only Miami alum with AFC North ties to be honored by the school recently. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was inducted into the Miami's sports Hall-of-Fame on Feb. 9.
