“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,” Harbaugh said. “The opportunity to be a part of that work is appreciated greatly and I will take it very seriously.”
