The Baltimore Ravens kick off their 2013-14 NFL season and Super Bowl defense on Thursday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High against the Denver Broncos, but prior to the game their head coach John Harbaugh was in the news for all of the right reasons.
As he prepares to lead the team on their title defense, Harbaugh was given a pay raise and new contract from the team.
Harbaugh’s previous contract went through the 2014 season. This contract replaces the two years that were remaining on his old deal and adds two more years, through 2016. Harbaugh will make nearly $7 million a year for the next four seasons.
The new deal is well-deserved.
Harbaugh has done nothing but help the team get to the top level of the sport since joining the team as head coach and he hopes to continue his success this upcoming season.
It all begins tonight for the Ravens and they want to get off on the right foot.
