As the Baltimore Ravens continue to work on an extension with head coach John Harbaugh, at least two other teams appear to be interested in making a push for his services.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, two teams "are strongly considering" of talking to the Ravens about Harbaugh's availability. That being said, Schefter also noted there aren't hints that Baltimore would willingly move on from Harbaugh, and that they still want to work on a new contract.
Harbaugh is only signed for the 2019 season, so if he doesn't agree to a new deal with the Ravens, the 56-year-old would be on the market next year. But after leading to the Ravens to their first AFC North division title in six seasons, it's hard to see a scenario in which Harbaugh would leave the Ravens.
The organization recently announced that they were retaining Harbaugh for 2019, and that the goal was to work on an extension for the Super Bowl winning head coach. This came weeks after a report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports that the two sides were set to mutually part ways after the season.

But after rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson took over, the 4-5 Ravens went on a late surge and won six of their final seven games, earning the franchise its first playoff appearance in four years.
Harbaugh has compiled a 104-72 record through 11 seasons as head coach of the Ravens. The team has reach three AFC Championship Games, won three division titles, and Super Bowl XLVII against the San Francisco 49ers.
What This Means
Right now, there are eight teams with head coach openings, and only so many candidates have the winning experience like Harbaugh. That's why he's going to be a hot candidate for some teams, but it seems like the Ravens are bent on keeping him around for at least next season.
