The expectation around the NFL over the past few weeks was that John Harbaugh would receive a contract extension from the Ravens. It took some time for the deal to come into fruition, but he'll remain in Baltimore for the foreseeable future.

Harbaugh joined the Ravens in 2006 and has turned himself into one of the best coaches in the NFL over the past decade. His overall record of 104-72 is very impressive considering the constant roster turnover in the league.

Although Baltimore struggled during the first half of the 2018 regular season, Harbaugh sparked his team to another postseason berth with a Week 17 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

While the Ravens have flourished under Harbaugh for the last 11 seasons, he had just one year remaining on his existing deal, Fortunately for Baltimore and its fan base, that is about to change very soon.

Despite rumors circulating in the past about the Ravens possibly trading Harbaugh, the Super Bowl winning coach has agreed in principle to an extension, per NFL insider Chris Mortensen.

The details and structure of the deal won't be available until it becomes official.

Nonetheless, Baltimore understands how vital Harbaugh is to the franchise's success. He's taken the Ravens to seven postseason appearances during his tenure.

With Lamar Jackson ready to become the full-time starter and Greg Roman handling the offensive playcalling, the Ravens are hoping for more success in 2019.
