The Seattle Seahawks are expected to announce a multi-year contract extension with head coach Pete Carroll at a 1:30 pm EST press conference today.

Carroll had one-year left on his contract, before agreeing to his new contract. He was in the final year of a five-year, $35 million dollar contract that he signed in 2010.

During this time, the Seahawks are 38-26 including winning Super Bowl XLVIII in the first-ever Outdoor Stadium Super Bowl. This is the Seahawks first-ever Championship after a 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos in February.

Carroll is 71-57 in the NFL, as a head coach. Prior to coming to the Seahawks, he was the New York Jets head coach in 1994 and the New England Patriots head coach from 1997 through 1999.

After leaving the Patriots in 1999, he was hired by Southern California, where he turned the Trojans program around. He guided the Trojans to the 2003 Associated Press National Championship, and the 2004 BCS National Championship.

He holds an 83-19 record in college football, and he is only one of three head coaches to win a Super Bowl along with a National Championship. Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer are the others to accomplish this feat.
