Harbaugh: Our goal is to be "one true champion"

Black Monday, the day after the NFL regular season ends when coaches and front-office personnel of under-performing and non-playoff teams are fired, came with a flurry.

Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta, however, made it immediately known that he is not leaving the organization. 

The Ravens were contacted by several teams asking for permission to interview him Monday. GMs for the San Diego Chargers, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars and Arizona Cardinals were fired.

In the past, DeCosta has been mentioned as a candidate for general manager positions with the Chicago Bears and New York Jets.

"I love being a part of the Ravens and plan to stay here and help them win championships. I have no intentions of leaving this team,” DeCosta said in a statement.

DeCosta works under GM Ozzie Newsome. The Ravens begin the playoffs with a wild-card game Sunday vs. the Indianapolis Colts.
