The Seahawks announced Monday the team signed head coach Pete Carroll to a multi-year contract extension.
“I am excited to announce that we have extended Head Coach Pete Carroll through the 2021 season,” Seahawks chair Jody Allen said in a statement. “This will continue the championship culture that we have created in Seattle.”
Carroll was hired as the Seahawks’ head coach in 2010. Under his leadership, Seattle won its first Super Bowl in 2013 and saw five consecutive seasons of 10 or more wins.
Carroll and general manager John Schneider have signed several Pro Bowlers in their tenure, including quarterback Russell Wilson, linebacker Bobby Wagner, cornerback Richard Sherman, safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, and wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, running back Marshawn Lynch, and defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril.
“I love this team and couldn’t be more proud to represent the 12s,” Carroll said in a statement.
