The Ravens are proud to announce that John Harbaugh was named to become the third head coach in franchise history.

Harbaugh, the former secondary coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, joined the Ravens Friday night after a long day of meetings.

After a nine-year successful stint as the Eagles special teams coordinator, Harbaugh took over a new role as the club's secondary coach in 2007. Known for his energy and charisma, the 45-year-old Harbaugh brings a youthful exuberance to the position.

“I couldn’t be happier for John and his entire family,” said Eagles head coach Andy Reid. “He has worked very hard to become a head coach in the National Football League. I know how much this means to him. He is very deserving of this opportunity and we will miss him in Philadelphia. John is a good friend, a great coach, and he has played a vital role in the success we have shared here. I wish him all the best in Baltimore.”
