Longtime Ravens coach John Harbaugh has signed a three-year extension with the team, Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti announced on Tuesday. Harbaugh, who has coached the Ravens since 2008, is now signed through the 2025 season. Harbaugh is the third-longest tenured active NFL head coach, behind only Pittsburgh's Mike Tomlin and New England's Bill Belichick. 

Harbaugh had on year remaining on a four-year deal he signed after leading Baltimore from a 4-5 start to a 10-6 finish in 2018, Lamar Jackson's first season in Baltimore. The Ravens went a combined 25-11 over the next two seasons while going 1-2 in the postseason. Baltimore went 8-9 this past season after an 8-3 start. Injuries, including an ankle injury to Jackson, greatly diminished the 2021 Ravens, who placed 25 players on injured reserve throughout the corse of the season. Harbaugh said Monday that the Ravens would take a new approach regarding offseason practices this year in an effort to reduce his team's injuries. 

"It'll be a little bit shorter, a little more execution oriented, less competitive type of practice," Harbaugh said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN. "Even our practices will go less ones against ones [starters against starters] than we have done in the past. Things like that, I think, will help us."

The 59-year-old Harbaugh has compiled a 137-88 regular season record and an 11-8 postseason record. In 2012, Harbaugh led the Ravens to the franchise's second Super Bowl title following a 34-31 win over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. Under Harbaugh's watch, the Ravens have secured nine playoff berths, four AFC North division titles and three AFC Championship Game appearances. 

Harbaugh is three wins away from passing Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy for 26th all-time in regular season wins. He is one of just 18 coaches in NFL history with at least 10 postseason victories. Harbaugh's .609 regular season winning percentage is the 33rd-highest mark in league annals, while his .579 postseason winning percentage is tied for the 28th highest mark in NFL history. 

Before arriving in Baltimore, Harbaugh served as the Eagles' special teams coach from 1998-06 and their defensive backs coach in 2007. He spent 14 years in the college coaching ranks that included eight seasons as the special teams coordinator at the University of Cincinnati.
