Pete Carroll agrees to new three-year deal with Seahawks

Entering the final year of his original five-year contract, head coach Pete Carroll has agreed to a new deal with the Super Bowl champion Seahawks that will keep him in Seattle through the 2016 season.

With the final year of his five-year contract fast-approaching, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll has agreed to a well-deserved new contract that will keep him with the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seahawks through the 2016 season. The three-year deal was announced at a Friday morning press conference at the team’s Renton headquarters along the shores of Lake Washington.

Carroll was originally named Seahawks head coach on Jan. 9, 2010 after a run that saw the club win nine games in two seasons under coaches Mike Holmgren (4-12 in 2008) and Jim Mora (5-11 in 2009). Carroll was coming off a wildly-successful nine-year (2001-09) run in college football at the University of Southern California that included winning back-to-back national championships in 2003 and 2004.

The work Carroll and general manager John Schneider have done in Seattle in just four years is nothing short of remarkable. Using more than 800 roster moves, they reconstructed the Seahawks in their image, hand-picking talent to assemble one of the NFL’s most-competitive, young, deep, and talented rosters.

The pair’s process has worked to the tune of three playoff berths in Carroll’s first four seasons, with the Seahawks claiming NFC West titles in 2010 and 2013, as well as the franchise’s first Lombardi Trophy with a dominant 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII this past February. The win put Carroll in elite company with former Dallas Cowboys coaches Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer as the only coaches to capture national championship and Super Bowl titles.

Seattle owns a record of 38-26 (5-2 postseason) with Carroll at the helm, going 29-9 the past two seasons, including playoffs. The team has thrived under his competitive culture, not losing a game by more than seven points since Nov. 6, 2011 – a 23-13 defeat at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Carroll, who at a hard-to-believe-he’s-62 is the second-oldest coach in the NFL (the New York Giants’ Tom Coughlin is 67), will enter his 21st season in the League this fall. He owns a 77-61 (.558) combined record as head coach at football’s highest level in jobs with the Seahawks (2010-present), New England Patriots (1997-99), and New York Jets (1994).
