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.

The Cantor Fitzgerald And BGC Partners Annual Charity Day
Go back in time, to a casino, and an elevator. Ray Rice emerges with a woman in his arms. She's motionless as he hauls her out of the elevator, like she's a sack of potatoes, and drops her body to the ground. Plop. Rice grabs her purse and some shoes. Can't forget those. But the elevator won't shut because her feet are blocking it because, you know, she's unconscious. The woman was Rice's then ...

How Much Job Security Does Each NFL Head Coach Have Entering 2014?

St.Jude Country Music Marathon & Half Marathon Presented By Nissan
Only in the National Football League is the head coach so important to the success of a team. It's not like in baseball where a manager just writes out a lineup card or chooses his pitching rotation. No, in baseball, you can't win if you don't have the players. But in football, a great head coach can make an average team into a good one and a terrific head coach can make an average team into a Super Bowl team. Look how q ...

Meet Matt Elam, the Baltimore Ravens Safety Set to Break Out This Summer

Jul 22 2014 8:54pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Baltimore Ravens v Cincinnati Bengals
If the Baltimore Ravens are to make it back to the playoffs in 2014, they'll need their younger players to make big leaps this season. There may not be a player this applies more to than second-year safety Matt Elam. In the midst of the worst season of John Harbaugh's head coaching career—an 8-8 record and no playoffs—Elam was one of the lone bright spots. Drafted in the first round (32nd overall) in the 2013 NFL draft, Elam was tasked with the unenviable ...

Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta broke out in 2012, catching 61 of 93 regular-season passes thrown his way for 669 yards and seven touchdowns.
