HARBAUGH is RAVENS head coach
Harbaugh replaces Brian Billick, who was canned Dec. 31 after registering a 5-11 in his ninth season with the Ravens.
Harbaugh, 45, is the ninth-youngest head coach in the NFL. He coached Eagles special teams from 1998-2005 before switching to the secondary this past season.
The Ravens were turned down by their first choice, Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. Garrett also flirted with the Atlanta Falcons before signing a new contract worth $3 million annually to remain in Dallas.
Harbaugh, whose brother Jim played for the Ravens, was a finalist for the UCLA job last month that went to Ravens offensive assistant Rick Neuheisel.
