Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh’s job status has never been in question. However, that didn’t stop the team from giving him a contract extension as a show of good faith.
According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, the Ravens gave Harbaugh a one-year contract extension last month. His contract now runs through the 2017 season.
The Ravens missed the playoffs last season for the first time in Harbaugh’s six-year tenure as head coach in Baltimore. Owner Steve Bisciotti said the extension is “a vote of confidence.”
Harbaugh received a four-year extension after the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013.
“[The extension] covers years seven through 10 with him,” Bisciotti said, “and I anticipate he’ll be here longer than 10 years.”
