The Ravens announced Friday night that John Harbaugh will be the head coach in 2019 and the team is working on a contract extension for the future.
The announcement came at 7 p.m. and apparently caught a number of coaches and team officials off guard. Maybe it would have been better if owner Steve Bisciotti would have tweeted it out.
It’s such an unprecedented announcement the night before a big game. The Ravens play the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday in a game that will help determine if they make the playoffs this season. The Ravens have been to the postseason only one time in the previous five seasons under Harbaugh, who has been the head coach since 2008.
