SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Jackie Harbaugh will wear a neutral-colored outfit, still to be determined. Her daughter, Joani Crean, little sister to coaching brothers John and Jim Harbaugh, plans to sport all black at the Super Bowl to show no allegiances whatsoever.

The entire Harbaugh family has already won big. They got their Super Bowl victory on Sunday, when each coach did his part to ensure a family reunion in New Orleans next week — John’s Baltimore Ravens facing off against Jim’s San Francisco 49ers in the first Super Bowl with sibling coaches on opposite sidelines.

And, no, the family members haven’t decided where to sit for the Feb. 3 NFL title game at the Superdome — or at least they aren’t revealing so.
