The most successful head coach in franchise history is going nowhere.
On Sunday morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Seahawks and head coach Pete Carroll have agreed on a multi-year extension to keep Carroll in Seattle for the rest of his illustrious coaching career.
Seahawks’ HC Pete Carroll has landed a multi-year contract extension that ties him to Seattle for years to come and should enable him to finish his coaching career there, per league sources. More ahead on Sunday NFL Countdown.https://t.co/fQRchMbhGb— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 8, 2020
In September, it was reported the Seahawks wanted to extend Carroll to reflect the coach’s desire to stay another five years. Now, it appears they have done so.
Schefter’s report added, “Although no one in the Seahawks organization is willing to confirm the extension, one source told ESPN that the belief is the deal will tie Carroll to Seattle through the 2025 season, when he will be 74 years old.”
An extension through the 2025 season would see Carroll lead the Seahawks for 15 years, only further cementing his place as the franchise’s greatest coach of all-time.
Carroll is already Seattle’s all-time winningest head coach and topped 100 wins with the franchise last season. With eight playoff appearances, four division titles, two Super Bowl appearances, and a Super Bowl championship accomplished together, Carroll and the Seahawks will have five more years to build upon an already tremendously successful partnership.
