Seahawks sign Pete Carroll to multi-year contract extension

The Seattle Seahawks announced Monday that they have signed Head Coach Pete Carroll to a multi-year contract extension.

The contract is extended through the 2021 season.

"I am excited to announce that we have extended Head Coach Pete Carroll through the 2021 season," said Jody Allen, Seahawks Chair and Trustee of the Paul G. Allen Trust. "This will continue the championship culture that we have created in Seattle."

Carroll was hired as the organization's eighth head coach on Jan. 11, 2010.

He has led the Seahawks to seven playoff appearances with a combined 97-59-1 record, back-to-back Super Bowl appearances in 2013-14, 10-plus wins in five-consecutive seasons (2012-16), and four NFC West Division titles.

"So grateful to Jody and the organization," said Carroll. "I love this team and couldn't be more proud to represent the 12s."

The franchise's all-time winningest coach, Carroll ranks 28th in NFL history with 131 combined wins (regular season and postseason).

Carroll is also the Executive Vice President of Football Operations.

On Sunday night, Seattle clinched a spot in the postseason with a 38-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
