Ravens coach John Harbaugh will have a role in NBC's coverage of Super Bowl XLIX.

Harbaugh, whose team finished two victories shy of their second Super Bowl appearance in three years, will appear on NBC's pregame, halftime and postgame show, a team spokesperson confirmed Tuesday. His involvement was first reported by Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch.

Harbaugh, fellow Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy, former All-Pro and Super Bowl winning safety Rodney Harrison and host Dan Patrick will be part of a "Coach's Clicker" segment where the two coaches analyze film and schemes of the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.

The features will be part of a pregame show that starts at noon and features, among other things, minute-long hometown visits to players' homes, segments on their wives, and an interview with Katy Perry, per Deitsch's rundown.

And yes, they'll also touch on Ballghazi, and whatever recent developments arise from the investigation into claims that the Patriots' footballs were under-inflated for the first half of the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.

It's already been a busy offseason for Harbaugh, who coached Team Carter in the Pro Bowl on Sunday. He's also hired an offensive coordinator and a quarterbacks coach in the two-plus weeks since the season ended.

Last year, Harbaugh went on a week-long trip to Afghanistan to visit American servicemen and women immediately following the Super Bowl.
