It’s the first-ever PFWA Coach of the Year award for Harbaugh and the first in franchise history.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman was also named Assistant Coach of the Year. Roman, in his first season as offensive coordinator, redesigned a system around Jackson that was the league’s top-scoring offense. The unit also set the single-season team rushing record, previously held by the 1978 New England Patriots. Roman joins Rex Ryan in 2006 as the only coordinators in franchise history to win the award.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch beat out first-year Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta for Executive of the Year.

The NFL will announce its annual Associated Press awards on Feb. 1, the day before Super Bowl LIV.
