According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens signed coach John Harbaugh to a contract extension this morning.

Harbaugh is only the fourth NFL coach since 1990 to lead his team to consecutive playoff berths in his first three seasons, so it’s likely he’ll get even more than the $2 million per year he earned during his first contract. The Ravens also have made the postseason in three-straight seasons for the first time in club history.

Terms of the deal were not made available, but I imagine we’ll hear about them soon enough.

UPDATED (2:55 p.m.):
According to the Associated Press, it's a three-year extension that will keep Harbaugh under contract through the 2014 season.

Team president Dick Cass said inking Harbaugh to a new deal "increases our opportunity to compete for the NFL championship every year, which is our goal."

Harbaugh nets three-year new contract

Great move by the Ravens.  Harbaugh has been a model coach in his first three years, and I'm hoping that he will be around to lead the Ravens to the Super Bowl.
