Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti added another year to coach John Harbaugh’s contract Monday, extending him through the 2019 season.
The team announced the extension Monday. Neither Bisciotti nor Harbaugh was immediately available to comment. Terms of the extension were not disclosed.
Harbaugh had been signed for two more years before Bisciotti added a year to his contract Monday. It’s at least the third time since Harbaugh signed a multiyear deal before the 2013 season that the Ravens have added a year onto his deal. It happened after the 8-8 season in 2013 and after the 2015 campaign when the Ravens went 5-11.
