John Harbaugh reportedly is on the way out of Baltimore.
The Ravens and their head coach likely will agree to a “mutual parting of the ways” once the season is over, according to CBS Sports.
Harbaugh isn’t expected to be fired in the middle of the 2018 season, but the likelihood of him returning in 2019 is “very bleak,” per the report.
Next year is the final season in Harbaugh’s contract, and there isn’t expected to be another one-year contract tacked on to Harbaugh’s current deal.
Harbaugh was hired by team owner Steve Bisciotti in 2008, the same year the team selected Joe Flacco, and took the team to a Super Bowl win in 2012.
However, the Ravens have a 44-45 record since that season heading in to Sunday’s game and are struggling with a 4-5 record so far this season.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is also expected to be replaced by Eric DeCosta next season, which could be the catalyst in flipping the Ravens’ staff.
Harbaugh is the third coach in Ravens history and currently leads the franchise in wins, winning percentage and playoff victories. However, Baltimore hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2014.
