Seahawks signed head coach Pete Carroll to a three-year extension through 2017.
Carroll has posted a 71-57 career record as a head coach, dating back to stints with the Jets and Patriots, and his record the past two seasons in Seattle is 24-8 with a Super Bowl 48 trophy. Carroll's style of play has arguably revolutionized today's NFL, as in a "copy-cat league" many teams have begun playing press coverage on defense while running the ball first on offense. Carroll also plays a major role in personnel decisions, along with GM John Schneider. In Pat Daugherty's head-coaching rankings column, Carroll came in second to only Bill Belichick.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks will announce a contract extension for coach Pete Carroll at a Friday press conference.

Carroll was going into the final season of his original five-year, $35 million deal he signed in 2010. It's a well-earned extension for the 62-year-old Carroll, who is one of only three coaches in football history to win both a Super Bowl and NCAA title. The Seahawks are 38-26 under Carroll's guidance, winning at least one playoff game in three of the past four seasons.

The Seahawks are the fourth youngest team to win a Super Bowl.

The average age of John Schneider/Pete Carroll's roster is 26 years, 175 days. The youngest championship club ever was the 1974-75 Steelers, who took home another Lombardi Trophy the following season. With a bevy of team-friendly contracts amongst the Seahawks' impressive stockpile of young talent, they'll be extremely well positioned to become the NFL's first repeat champs since the 2003-04 Patriots. Vegas has already installed Seattle as 2014 favorites.
