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 New Orleans Saints will wrap up their 2014 preseason with a Thursday night home matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. The Saints are undefeated through three exhibition games, having just dispatched the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night in the dress rehearsal. While winning is still a major goal, Saints coach Sean Payton will likely be most pleased with an injury-free outing in Thursday night’s contest. As Payton readies his club for its Sept. 7 season opener against the div ...

Week 3 of the NFL preseason is here. The Baltimore Ravens will host the Washington Redskins Saturday night at M&T Bank Stadium at 7:30 p.m. ET.

San Francisco 49ers: Should We Worry Halfway Through 2014 Preseason?

Aug 18 2014 5:34pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers have scored a total of three points in eight total quarters of preseason football thus far. Let that number sink in for just a moment—three points. OK, so we might give a mulligan to the team's first preseason loss in Baltimore, which saw the 49ers defeated by John Harbaugh's Ravens 23-3.  But the disastrous 34-0 shutout at the hands of the visiting Denver Broncos on August 17 was a complete embarrassment, especially when considerin ...

Tough Talk

Aug 15 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: Grantland

The NFL is so popular, and plays such a charged role in American culture, that it has become a large paradox. The league is a mirror of society, reflecting our difficulties with race, class, sexual orientation, and gender. But the league is also an escape from society, offering a fantasy of liberated violence and untrammeled, almost superhuman power. This paradox creates a problem, because it means the NFL is forever raising urgent conversations and then getting in the way of them, l ...

49ers WR Michael Crabtree returns after injury

49ers WR Michael Crabtree has returned to practice after experiencing soreness in his hamstring. He has missed about a week and a half after head coach John Harbaugh said Crabtree would miss about two weeks of practice, but wouldn't disclose the injury. There was a fear he may still not be recovered from his ACL tear last year, which caused him to miss 11 games. Crabtree should be ready to play in the 49ers second preseason game versus the Den ...
