For the first time in Super Bowl history, the coaches will hold a joint press conference two days before the game.

Brothers Jim and John Harbaugh are scheduled to appear together at 8:30 a.m. (5:30 a.m., PT) on Friday, Feb. 1. It'll be the last time the 49ers coach and the Baltimore Ravens coach will be available to the media prior to Super Bowl XLVII.

Jim Harbaugh will be available to the media for six consecutive days, beginning Sunday evening after the 49ers' team charter arrives in New Orleans.

The Baltimore Ravens are scheduled to arrive in New Orleans on Monday afternoon -- approximately 21 hours after the 49ers.

"Media Day" takes place on Tuesday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but the coaches and players must fulfill media responsibilities from the day of their arrivals through Thursday. Only the coaches are made available on the Friday prior to the game.
