Harbaugh has been respected as a great coach. As previously mentioned, Harbaugh is the only head coach in NFL history to take his team to the playoffs in each of his first four seasons. Harbaugh has also been successful on most challenge attempts.

However, Harbaugh has sometimes been criticized for keeping unpopular offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, among some other things. But in 2013 he led the Baltimore Ravens to the Super Bowl.
