Ravens head coach John Harbaugh denies interest in USC job

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh is "high on USC's short list" to become the school's next head football coach, radio personality Dan Patrick said Thursday.

But Harbaugh made it clear Friday that he isn't interested.

"I love the Ravens. I love being here," Harbaugh said. "It's not a consideration."

The Ravens echoed Harbaugh's sentiments:

Harbaugh, 53, owns the sixth-best winning percentage among active NFL coaches (83-49, 629). He has guided the Ravens to the playoffs in six of his seven seasons in Baltimore.

The Ravens are off to their worst start in franchise history at 1-4, but Harbaugh is one of four coaches in NFL history to win a Super Bowl and not have a losing season in his head coaching career.

This isn't the first time Harbaugh has been linked to a Southern California school. In 2008, the UCLA Bruins chose Rick Neuheisel over Harbaugh in their coaching search. A month later, Harbaugh was hired by the Ravens.
