Report: Ravens closing in on extension with John Harbaugh

The Baltimore Ravens are poised to sign longtime head coach John Harbaugh to a contract extension, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Harbaugh, 59, is entering the final year of a four-year contract he signed in January 2019. The new deal is expected to be done in a few weeks, per the report.

With Sean Payton reportedly stepping down, Harbaugh would become the third longest-tenured coach in the NFL, behind only Bill Belichick and Mike Tomlin.

Harbaugh is 137-88 in 14 regular seasons leading the Ravens. He is 11-8 in the postseason, including a Super Bowl title in the 2012 season. The team missed the playoffs this season, the first time since 2017. Under Harbaugh, the Ravens have made the playoffs in nine of his 14 seasons.

He was named the 2019 AP Coach of the Year.

Harbaugh has only been a head coach with the Ravens, who hired him from the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008 after 10 seasons as their special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach.
