By now, most people know that it was New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick who recommended to Bisciotti that he take a look at Harbaugh to fill the Ravens' coaching vacancy after Brian Billick was let go. But it seems worth revisiting after Harbaugh led the Ravens to the Super Bowl and went through Belichick's Patriots in order to do it. This was Belichick on Harbaugh and the Ravens during Tuesday's coaching breakfast at the NFL Annual Meetings: "I've known John for a long time. When he was the special teams coach in Philadelphia, we always had a good relationship, and I've always had a lot of respect for the way he coaches teams. … I have a lot of respect for Steve Bisciotti, the organization he's put together, can't help but admire another Annapolitan doing well, love the fact that we're from the same town. Not a lot of us from Annapolis in the National Football League. And Ozzie [Newsome] obviously, his first coaching/scouting experience was with me in Cleveland after his finished his playing career in 1990, and I have all the respect in the world for Ozzie as a person, as a player, as a scout, as a coach, as an administrator. They've done a tremendous job. It doesn't surprise me."
