Seahawks coach Pete Carroll flatly denied that he has any interest in the Rams' coaching vacancy.

"Yes," was Carroll's response when asked if he could rule out any chance he'd listen on replacing Jeff Fisher. He might as well have replied "lol." The "blank stare" emoji also would have sufficed.

The NFL has fined the Seahawks $400,000 and stripped them of a 2017 fifth-round pick for "excessive off-season workouts."

The violation occurred at OTAs on June 6 when the Seahawks used "excessive on-field contact," which is against the NFL and NFLPA's collective bargaining agreement. Coach Pete Carroll has also been hit with a $200,000 fine while the Seahawks will forfeit a week of OTAs (three practices) next offseason. The Seahawks obviously didn't learn their lesson after essentially committing the same violation two years ago. That time they were docked $300,000 while OTAs was cut short by two days.

Seahawks agreed to terms with coach Pete Carroll on an extension through 2019.

The deal pairs Carroll with GM John Schneider for the next four seasons. Carroll is the league's oldest coach — really — but arguably its second best behind Bill Belichick. Carroll has staked his claim to being one of the greatest football minds of all time in Seattle, building on the amazing success he had at USC. The Seahawks have made the playoffs 5-of-6 years on Carroll's watch, advancing to two Super Bowls. Going on 65, it's possible this is Carroll's final contract.

The Seahawks have begun extension talks with head coach Pete Carroll.

He's entering the last year of his deal. The Seahawks have been to the playoffs five times in six seasons under Carroll. He's already one of the league's three highest-paid coaches.

Speaking Monday, coach Pete Carroll strongly denied rumors that he changed out of a run to a pass on the Seahawks' final play of the Super Bowl.

Some conspiracy theories have surfaced suggesting Carroll wanted golden boy Russell Wilson to be the hero, not crotch-grabbing Marshawn Lynch. That's a silly thought in any game, let alone the Super Bowl. Carroll said he knew the Seahawks would have to throw at least once in the goal-line sequence given the time remaining and their timeout situation. "When [the Patriots] sent their goal-line guys in, I know we have the advantage on the matchups in the passing game." Most of the free world would've tried to run it in on second down. But goal-line interceptions are extremely rare -- there had been zero from the one-yard line all season until Wilson was picked by Malcolm Butler.

The Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have been "collectively fined" $300,000 for violating the league's offseason non-contact practice rules

The team has also been docked two minicamp practices. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Seahawks' June 16 OTAs session was "deemed unsuitable under CBA rules." It's hardly a federal offense, but won't help Carroll's reputation as a renegade rules bender.

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.

Fri, Apr 4, 2014 01:33:00 PM'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.
