John Harbaugh Salary and Net Worth: A Look at Ravens Head Coach’s Career Earnings

John Harbaugh has given the Baltimore Ravens 16 seasons of excellence and numerous postseason runs. How much does he earn as a head coach?

With Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll no longer at their head coaching posts, John Harbaugh is now the second-longest tenured NFL head coach.

The leader of the Baltimore Ravens has lasted 16 seasons. He has placed his team in a position where they’re the top seed in the AFC playoffs and need just two more wins to secure the conference title.

But through all of Harbaugh’s longevity in Charm City, how much is he earning?

Examining John Harbaugh’s Contract and His Place Among NFL Head Coaches

Harbaugh is currently in the second season of a three-year extension he signed back on March 29, 2022.

That deal pays him $12 million. He lures in an annual base salary of $4 million per year.

But does that make Harbaugh the highest-paid NFL head coach, especially with the New England Patriots moving on from Belichick and the Seattle Seahawks reassigning Carroll? Harbaugh is still making less money than just three other NFL head coaches.

In looking at the top five highest-paid NFL head coaches, the most lucrative contract belongs to a returning head coach from this past season: Sean Payton with the Denver Broncos. The Super Bowl XLIV winner with the New Orleans Saints earned an $18 million deal when Denver offered him the head coaching gig.

Sean McVay is raking in $14 million through his contract with the Los Angeles Rams. Trailing McVay is Mike Tomlin of Harbaugh’s AFC North rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers — who is on a $12.5 million deal but is entering the last year of his deal. Many have speculated about a potential departure.

Surprisingly, Harbaugh is tied monetarily with two-time Super Bowl winner Andy Reid. The Kansas City Chiefs head coach also makes $12 million with his deal.

What Is Harbaugh’s Net Worth?

While the Super Bowl-winning head coach Harbaugh makes $12 million to lead the Ravens out onto the field, his net worth is much higher.

Harbaugh’s net worth sits at $40 million as of 2024, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

That likely includes all the career earnings Harbaugh has made throughout his career — which includes previous contracts.

His very first contract was for four years and up to $2 million, signed before his first season in 2008.

One of his first major contracts with Baltimore dates back to 2013. He signed a deal that was good for four years and worth up to nearly $7 million per season. This deal replaced the three-year extension he previously signed that topped out at $12 million.

Harbaugh has become the longest-tenured head coach in Ravens history. He’s also the team’s winningest head coach with 171 career wins and owns one Super Bowl ring.

His Baltimore teams have won five division crowns, including this past season’s AFC North title.

In the event the Ravens end up hoisting the franchise’s third Vince Lombardi Trophy, the second in Harbaugh’s coaching career, the team may need to increase his net worth once again.
