2 NFL teams expected to talk to Baltimore Ravens about John Harbaugh after the season
His current team is in the middle of a playoff game against the Los Angles Chargers, but that isn’t stopping other teams from reaching out to the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, John Harbaugh, about their openings.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that there are two teams currently inquiring about the Super Bowl winning coach’s availability. According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, “It’s hard to imagine that the Jets not being one of the inquiring teams.”
Before an injury to quarterback Joe Flacco forced Harbaugh to start rookie Lamar Jackson, there were reports coming from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network that he was on the hot seat. However, since starting Jackson in Week 11, the Ravens went 6-1 and won the AFC North with a record of 10-6. Now, Rapoport is reporting that Harbaugh doesn’t want to be traded, he would rather either play out the final year of his contract with the Ravens or sign an extensions.
Harbaugh is the winningest coach in Ravens history with a 114-77 record (including playoffs), and he guided the team to a Super Bowl title in the 2012 season. The Ravens have been one of the most stable franchises in the NFL in terms of coaching continuity, as Harbaugh is only the third coach in the team’s 23-year history.
Among active NFL coaches, Harbaugh holds the fifth-longest tenure with the same team, trailing only Bill Belichick, Marvin Lewis, Sean Payton, and Mike Tomlin.
