Super Bowl XLVII champion and Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh agreed to a four-year, $28 million contract extension.

Super Bowl XLVII champion and Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh agreed to a four-year contract extension. 

The deal, which was verified by a Ravens team source, makes him one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL, per Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Harbaugh reportedly agreed to the extension "months ago," but the news only broke out around an hour prior to Baltimore's season opener against the Denver Broncos on Thursday. 

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, "The new contract replaces the two years left on Harbaugh's previous deal, the source said. NBC Sports reported that the deal is for four years and worth nearly $7 million per season." 

Schefter also adds Harbaugh becomes the third AFC North head coach to receive an extension. Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers received one through 2016 while Marvin Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals was given one that runs through the 2014 season. 

Prior to the deal, only three NFL head coaches are believed to make at least $7 million annually: Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints, Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots and Andy Reid of the Kansas City Chiefs, per Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith. 

Now, Harbaugh will be one of them. 

His extension comes on the heels of the Ravens' Super Bowl triumph last February. Since taking over the Ravens' coaching reigns in 2008, he has won at least one playoff game every year. Zrebiec also points out Harbaugh is the first NFL coach ever to reach three conference title games in his first five seasons. 

His current overall regular-season record also stands at 54-26 (.675). 

All of these come from a head coach with no previous college and professional football coaching experience prior to his appointment. 

Congratulations, Coach John Harbaugh.

Ravens vs. Steelers: TV Info, Spread, Injury Updates, Game Time and More

Oct 31 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Two teams vying for the cutthroat AFC North will go head-to-head on Sunday Night Football in Week 9 as the Baltimore Ravens visit the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both clubs enter the weekend 5-3 but technically behind the 4-2-1 Cincinnati Bengals, who are likely to add another win, as the Jacksonville Jaguars are visiting in Week 9. Despite a stellar start to the season for each, they might as well be starting out 0-0 with how tight-knit the division currently is. That make ...

NFL Picks Week 9: Complete Selections Against the Spread

Sunday will mark the 16th time Peyton Manning and Tom Brady square off against each other. And while the legendary quarterbacks have produced a handful of memorable battles, No. 16 may just turn into the best of the bunch. Practically dinosaurs compared to the rest of the league, the 38-year-old Manning and 37-year-old Brady are arguably at the very peak of their respective games. In the past four weeks, the future Hall of Famers have combined to complete 70.2 percent ...

AFC North Proving Itself as NFL's Toughest Division

Oct 28 2014 6:14am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Face it. If you’re looking for a dominant team this season in the NFL, we have not seen it. Inconsistency has been the hallmark of much of the league to date. The ups and downs of their roller-coaster year would make Coney Island proud. But isn’t it interesting that once again, one division has a certain look to it? And while no one’s making any playoff or Super Bowl predictions based on this limited body of work, rece ...

CINCINNATI, Ohio — Andy Dalton looked over the spread-out Ravens defence and decided there was enough room for a quarterback sneak. With a push from his linemen, he surged into end zone for a last-minute win. Surged the Bengals back into first place, too. Dalton made up for his two fourth-quarter turnovers by scoring on a 1-yard sneak with 57 seconds left on Sunday, rallying Cincinnati to a 27-24 victory over Baltimore that changed the AFC North’s pecking order.
