"It's a tremendous honor," Harbaugh said. "This is something that means a lot personally and for our family. Knute Rockne said that all of football runs through Amos Alonzo Stagg. He innovated so many things, including the jersey number, reverses which we ran one [Sunday]. Maybe we did it in his honor.
"The huddle, a number of things, coach Stagg changed football. It means so much for a coach and a son of a coach and for our family to be involved with such an award. Thank you very much. It will be treasured."
