Harbaugh mum on contract extension

Ravens ready to further invest in veteran coach.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh did not have much to say about a report saying the team is looking to extend his contract.

On Dec. 21, the Ravens announced they will retain their coach heading into next season and plan to begin negotiations for a contract extension. Harbaugh's current contract expires after next season.

When asked whether he has reflected on the teams announcement, Harbaugh replied: “No, I haven’t.”

When pressed further, Harbaugh would not take the bait,

He said the team is simply focused on beating the Browns in the regular-season finale, winning an AFC North title for the first time since 2012 and snapping a three-year playoff drought.

“I think it’s a non-story," Harbaugh said. "We’re just trying to win football games. We’ve kept it simple, kept it about football. Everybody is on a one-year deal. You’re on a one-week deal, as far as I’m concerned, in this league, players and coaches. That’s how we are. We get that.

"Players and coaches understand that. We don’t think too much about all of that. You try to go out and do your best the very next game, have the best day you can have, and that’s how we look at it. So, all that stuff is really not something that you dwell on or think about. There are a few other things to think about.”

It would be wise to sign Harbaugh to a long term deal.
