John Harbaugh, Ravens close to long-term extension

The Baltimore Ravens and head coach John Harbaugh reportedly have come to an agreement in principle on a contract extension, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

The big picture: With one more year remaining on his current deal, the team is following through with its public show of support for Harbaugh in December.

Record of excellence: Coach Harbaugh is one of the best head coaches in the NFL.

  • Since taking over in 2008, Harbaugh has a record of 104-72. He has led the Ravens to eight winning seasons, two 8-8 seasons, and only one losing season. Of course, he also won a Super Bowl.

Looking ahead: Baltimore can continue to build around Lamar Jackson, whom Harbaugh backed 100 percent after Joe Flacco was injured.
