Harbaugh now a member of NFL Competition Committee

OWINGS MILLS -- Heading into his third season as the Baltimore Ravens' head coach, John Harbaugh has accepted an invitation to join a subcommittee of the NFL competition committee.

Harbaugh's responsibilities will include making recommendations on rule changes to the competition committee, the team announced. He'll also attend meetings for the general manager advisory committee.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is a longtime competition committee member.

Subcommittee chairman John Madden invited Harbaugh to join the subcommittee and he accepted back in May.

"It's an honor and responsibility to join the competition subcommittee chaired by coach Madden," Harbaugh said in a statement. "I have the utmost respect for coach Madden and for his commitment to the game of football, as well as for commissioner [Roger] Goodell and his vigorous efforts to seek out and implement ideas in every area of our sport.

"Coach Madden and commissioner Goodell share in that commitment to work in every way possible to improve and maintain the quality of football for everybody involved in the game; especially the fans. The opportunity to be a part of that work is appreciated greatly and I will take it very seriously."
