Ingrid has been happily married to her husband John for 27 years now. After having lived in Newton Square, PA and East Tawas, MI, the couple found a home in Maryland.
John met his wife, Ingrid, in 1985. “We met when I was a graduate assistant for my dad (Coach Jack Harbaugh) and Ingrid was a student assistant in the baseball office at Western Michigan University,” Harbaugh recalls. “Ingrid was working in the baseball office when the copy machine broke, and I was there to fix it. That’s how it all started.”Harbaugh knew immediately that Ingrid was “the one.” “I knew from the beginning, because I appreciated the depth of her personality and character,” he said. “We were both young and still figuring out where we stood on things. I knew she had a good heart.”
So, during a recruiting trip, Harbaugh made a side trip to a jewelry store. “I picked out a ring and put in on the trunk of a little stuffed elephant doll. When I gave her the elephant, she saw the ring on its trunk. I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me.”
While Ingrid is busy being a full-time mother to their 10-year old daughter Alison, John is coaching the Ravens.
