There's another John Harbaugh in the world.

Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh, the brother of the longtime Ravens coach, announced Wednesday on Twitter that his wife had given birth to a baby boy.

They kept the name in the family. After all, John did tell ESPN this summer: "If I could wish anything for anybody, it would be to have a brother like John."

The child is Jim Harbaugh's fourth with his wife, Sarah, who married in 2008. Their first son, Jack, was named for Jim and John's father, a former college football coach himself.

John (the coach, not the baby) has one teenage daughter, Alison, with his wife, Ingrid. This whole second John Harbaugh thing is going to be a logistical nightmare at their family reunion and around Christmastime, though.
