The extension adds two more years to Carroll's previous deal,
which had one season remaining, and will keep him with the team
through the 2016 National Football League season.
Carroll, who was named Seattle's head coach in early 2010, took
over a team that was coming off a 5-11 season and turned them
into Super Bowl champions four years later.
"It's not about what you just did. It's about what you're going
to do now," Carroll, 62, said during a news conference to
announce his contract extension.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed but a report on
the NFL's website said Carroll, who had one season left on his
five-year, $35 million contract, will be one of the three
highest-paid coaches in the league.
In his first season with Seattle, Carroll led the team to an NFC
West division title. They won another division title in the 2013
season with a 13-3 regular season record and went on to beat the
Denver Broncos in February's Super Bowl.
