SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks have locked up coach Pete Carroll with a three-year contract extension, barely two months after he led the franchise to its first Super Bowl title.
The Seahawks announced the extension Friday. Carroll’s original five-year deal, signed with the team in January 2010, was set to expire after the 2014 season.
Carroll has proved that his attitude and approach can work in the NFL during his third stint as a coach at the pro level. He’s preached competition with his players and it has shown with the emergence of such young stars as quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman.
The former USC coach is 38-26 in four regular seasons with Seattle and 5-2 in the playoffs. At 62, he is the second-oldest coach in the league. The Giants’ Tom Coughlin is 67.
