Ian Rapoport reports that the Seattle Seahawks have reach an agreement with HC Pete Carroll on a contract extension.
- According to Rapoport, Carroll’s new contract will make him among the three highest paid coaches in the league.
- Rapoport adds that the agreement will be announced at a press conference on Friday.
Carroll was entering the final year of his contract and was clearly due for an extension.
Carroll, 62, signed a five-year, $35 million contract with the Seahawks back in 2010 after a very successful run at USC. In his four years in Seattle, he has led the Seahawks to a 38 and 26 record (.594%) and the franchise’s first Super Bowl title this past season.
It’s a well deserved extension for a guy who has reinvigorated the Seahawks franchise and helped to build a well respected organization.
