The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks will announce a contract extension for coach Pete Carroll on Friday, league sources confirmed Thursday night.

The team announced a news conference for 1:30 p.m. ET on Friday. No reason for the news conference was given.
Carroll was entering the final year of an original five-year, $35 million deal he signed to leave USC and become coach of the Seahawks in 2010. He led the franchise to its first Super Bowl championship in February.
Carroll said several times during the 2013 season that he was fine and had no concerns about his contract situation with the Seahawks.
There was speculation that Friday’s news conference could be to announce a contract extension for free safety Earl Thomas. Those rumors were fueled by a Thursday night tweet from Thomas that said “GOD you’re so good!!”
The Seahawks still hope to work out extensions for Thomas and cornerback Richard Sherman. Both players are set to become free agents after the 2014 season.
News of Carroll’s extension was earlier reported by the NFL Network. Covered the NFL at the Houston Post and Houston Chronicle, including eight Super Bowls
