The Baltimore Ravens are keeping John Harbaugh around for a while. The team announced a new extension for the longtime head coach this afternoon.
Harbaugh and the Ravens have agreed on a four-year extension. The deal takes him through the 2022 season, and Harbaugh will hold a press conference at 11 a.m. ET tomorrow to discuss the contract.
“I’m very excited with this contract, the opportunity to continue our work here, and I’m humbled by it,” Harbaugh said via press release.
“I am thankful for the support from the Ravens, especially Steve Bisciotti. We’re working hard to make the 2019 Ravens the best we can be. We have an excellent team foundation, and we have a great organization with smart, hard-working people.”
Late in the season, there were whispers that Harbaugh's time in Baltimore might be up, but that always seemed unlikely. The team and Harbaugh insisted publicly that they were committed to continuing the partnership.
Harbaugh has been the Ravens' head coach since 2008. He owns a 104-72 overall record and a 10-6 mark in the playoffs, including a win in Super Bowl XLVII.
Baltimore went 10-6 and won the NFC North in 2018 before falling at home to the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC Wild Card game.
