Ronnie Bell is one such player who inherits the legacy of Jim Harbaugh from his Michigan days. Now, as he takes up the responsibility of 49ers’ WR in their second Super Bowl appearance after the Niners lost to the Ravens in 2020, he confesses about knowing Jim Harbaugh ending up in the NFL. ” I feel like it was just a matter of time,” he said. The reason for it is exactly what everyone is assuming: a Super Bowl on his shelf. “Two years ago, when everyone was like he might go, he might go. He sat down with the whole team and told us that one thing that kills him up is that he’s never won a Super Bowl,” admitted Bell.

So I’m happy for Coach and I’m excited to see what he does for the Chargers,” excitedly said Bell. Well, what Harbaugh might do for the Chargers will only be uncovered in the regular season, but his fervent passion for the Bowl is crystal clear with his relentless recruiting at the Chargers.

Along with this, Harbaugh and Hortiz have almost finalized their next assistant general manager as Chad Alexander, the Ravens’ director of player personnel, per SNYtv’s Conor J Hughes’ report. This would be the second recruit from the Ravens, who snatched Harbaugh’s Lombardi right from his hands in 2013. Hence, this season, he has the best setup, with their former staff with them, to aid them to the same Super Bowl Ring.
