Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh won the Super Bowl last Sunday and his brother Jim was left with the disappointment of losing, which may be one reason why the two have yet to speak.

John Harbaugh appeared on David Letterman's Late Show on Thursday and spoke about his post game handshake with his brother as well as how much contact they have had since the game.

"I told him I loved him, you know, good game, and he said 'congratulations,' you know, 'I'm proud of you,'" John Harbaugh said of the post game handshake.

Letterman followed up and asked John if he had spoken to Jim since the handshake.

"I have not," Harbaugh said. "We have not had a conversation since. We will -- soon."

Both coaches have to deal with preparations for next season and since the two teams made the Super Bowl, 30 other got a head start. John said that they would be talking very soon though.

"I'm hoping, you know, sometime soon. We actually, we have meetings coming up, we have a combine in two weeks."

John spoke about trying to console Jim after the loss and how it likely wouldn't go so well.

"There's no way that you console your brother. Anybody that has a brother knows that. You don't console your brother, it doesn't work," John said.

The Super Bowl was one of the most memorable in recent years, due to the coaching brothers and the blackout of the Superdome.

The 49ers had more talent on paper, but the Ravens played better on the field, rushing out to a 22-point lead before the lights went down in the third quarter. The 49ers made a furious comeback by scoring three times in the third quarter, but they came up short in the end on an incomplete pass out of the end zone to give the ball back to the Ravens, who were able to run enough time off the clock.

The game was notable for many reasons, mostly because of the 30 minute blackout that occurred in the third quarter. The Super Bowl saw many firsts, including the blackout, as well as the first fake field goal attempt and the first 108-yard kickoff return. The 49ers also became the first team to lose the Super Bowl after having a 300-yard passer with Colin Kaepernick, a 100-yard rusher with Frank Gore, and two 100-yard receivers in Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis.
