The NFL notebook …

Rewarding Brian Billick for the best regular season in team history, the Baltimore Ravens extended their coach’s contract yesterday, Wednesday, albeit in an unceremonious way.

The Ravens made the announcement in a two-sentence e-mail, adding that no details would be “publicly announced or discussed.”

Billick, who guided the Ravens to a team-record 13 regular-season wins this season, had one season left on his contract. This marks the third extension for Billick, who received the others after reaching the postseason in 2001 and 2003.

STEELERS

PITTSBURGH — Russ Grimm sounded like a man who can’t wait to coach the Pittsburgh Steelers. He can only hope the Steelers agree he’s ready to become only their third head coach in 38 years.

Grimm, a Steelers assistant for six seasons and their assistant head coach for three, met for six hours Wednesday during his second interview in a week with owner Dan Rooney, president Art Rooney II and director of football operations Kevin Colbert.

DOLPHINS

MIAMI — San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron arrived in town Wednesday for a second interview with the Miami Dolphins.

Cameron, 45, first interviewed with the Dolphins shortly after coach Nick Saban left for Alabama on Jan. 3. Cameron became available when San Diego was eliminated from the playoffs Sunday by New England.

RAIDERS

OAKLAND — The Oakland Raiders brought in Southern California quarterbacks coach Steve Sarkisian for a second interview Wednesday as the team intensified its search for a new head coach.

Sarkisian, the first candidate to interview after Art Shell was fired, met again with owner Al Davis and other team executives.

VICK LAWSUIT

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. — A lawsuit by a teenager who said she had nearly a two-year sexual relationship with Miami Dolphins rookie Marcus Vick is groundless and should be thrown out, Vick’s attorney said.

The $6.3 million lawsuit filed in Montgomery County Circuit Court last month by the 17-year-old and her grandmother accuses the former Virginia Tech quarterback of sexual battery upon a minor, infliction of emotional distress, fraud and other charges.
