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.

Do the Baltimore Ravens Not Need Bernard Pierce?

Sep 29 2014 12:28pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce seems to have disappeared. Once a favorite to lock down the starting job, thanks to his collegiate experience running in a blocking scheme similar to that of Ravens' offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, Pierce now is left wanting for playing time. Pierce was benched after fumbling the ball in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, leaving Justin Forsett to get the rest of the team's carries—11 in all, for 70 ...

How the Ravens Can and Should Run the Ball Against the Carolina Panthers

Sep 24 2014 2:33pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

While the biggest storyline for the Baltimore Ravens' trip to Carolina this week to take on the Panthers will inevitably be Ravens receiver Steve Smith Sr. taking out his wrath on his former team, the Ravens might be better off taking a ground-and-pound approach to defeat the Panthers. The Panthers still boast a dangerous defense; however, they are softening up to the run in ways they didn't in 2013, ...

Sep 22 2014 6:28pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has undergone surgery to repair a dislocated right hip and is done for the year. The operation was performed on Monday. The injury occurred in Sunday’s game against Cleveland, when Pitta went down without being touched and had to be removed from the field on a cart. It’s the same injury that sidelined Pitta for much of last season. Coach John Harbaugh is unsure if it’s a career-ending injury. He says, “We have to be really hopeful for Dennis’ r ...
