Unlike his brother Jim Harbaugh, who had to deal with trade rumors this offseason, John Harbaugh has never had reason to question the Baltimore Ravens' commitment to him. The team rewarded him with a four-year extension after the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013 and this week gave him another extension, which will keep him under contract through the 2017 season.

“[The extension] covers years seven through 10 with him,” Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, “and I anticipate he’ll be here longer than 10 years.”

The Ravens went to the playoffs in each of Harbaugh's first five years at the helm, before missing out last season. They have become one of the top teams in the AFC North under his guidance, so keeping consistency with the coaching staff is a no-brainer. The extension will only help to keep the momentum rolling and will allow the team's younger players to improve without having to learn new systems on a yearly basis.
