After nine weeks of the NFL season, the Baltimore Ravens sat with a 4-5 record after starting the season 3-1. The inexplicable losses had many wondering if John Harbaugh's time as the team's head coach was coming to an end.

Then Lamar Jackson led the team to victories in four of five games and all of the talk about firing Harbaugh subsided. On Friday night the Ravens took an additional step to make sure there were no questions about John Harbaugh's future with the franchise.

Baltimore announced it's working on a contract extension to keep Harbaugh as the coach of the Ravens.

Harbaugh's contract was set to expire following the 2019 NFL season. He led the Ravens to the playoffs in six of his first seven seasons, but the team is in danger of missing the playoffs for the fourth-straight year.

Harbaugh owns a career regular season record of 102-70 and a 10-5 record in the playoffs.
