The Baltimore Ravens and coach John Harbaugh are reported to have reached an agreement on a contract extension that would keep the coach in Baltimore past the 2019 season.

Per ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the team and Harbaugh have reached an agreement in principle on a contract extension. A source near the negotiations told ESPN's Adam Schefter that there is "some lawyer stuff left to do" before the deal is made official.

Though Harbaugh found himself on the hot seat as recent as November, the veteran coach engineered an improbable midseason turnaround that saved the Ravens' season and maybe even his job. Following a 4-1 run after the bye week, Baltimore publicly committed to Harbaugh back in late December, when they officially announced that they would retain him for the 2019 season and work on an extension.

In 11 seasons with the team after being hired in 2008, Harbaugh has a 104-72 all-time regular-season record and a 10-6 record in the playoffs. Harbaugh has led Baltimore to a playoff berth in seven seasons (2008-2012, 2014 and 2017), and his 10 playoff wins since 2008 rank as the NFL's second-most over that span, behind only Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots.
