Seahawks awarded a multi-year contract extension to head coach Pete Carroll, all but ensured he would coach elsewhere and finish his decorated career in Seattle, joint sources the delegation told ESPN.
The Seahawks made the move quietly, long before their Sunday match in Buffalo against the Bills, according to alliance sources.
Although no one at the Seahawks organization is willing to confirm the extension, a source told ESPN there is confidence that the deal will bind Carroll with Seattle through the end of the 2025 season, when he will be 74 years old.
Carroll, who turned 69 in September, is the NFL’s oldest head coach, but few can match his energy and positivity. The Seahawks are right on the NFC West title hunt this season once again, entering Sunday with a 6-1 record and midfielder Russell Wilson playing at MVP level.
Now in his 11th season with the Seahawks, Carroll is the winning head coach in franchise history with a 106-60-1 record. Carroll has led Seattle to eight playoffs, four NFC West titles, twice to the Super Bowl and one Super Bowl win.
