After winning Super Bowl XLVII in February of 2013, the Baltimore Ravens gave head coach John Harbaugh a four-year contract extension. While last year didn’t bring the type of success that the team was hoping for, they still rewarded Harbaugh with yet another extension.
According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, the Ravens and Harbaugh agree to a one-year contract extension.
His deal will now run through 2017.
There has never been any question about Harbaugh’s future with the Ravens, and the second extension in three years proves that the Baltimore front office is dedicated to having him lead their team.
Despite missing the playoffs last season, team owner Steve Bisciotti says that the new extension is “a vote of confidence,” which is something that every head coach would love to have.
