“I am excited to announce that we have extended Head Coach Pete Carroll through the 2021 season,” Jody Allen, Seahawks Chair and Trustee of the Paul G. Allen Trust, said. “This will continue the championship culture that we have created in Seattle.”

The 67-year-old San Francisco, California native guided the Seahawks back to the playoffs on Sunday Night Football. They clinched a berth with a win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

The team has gone 9-6 this season. They are making the playoffs for the first-time in two seasons.

As the Seahawks head coach, he has gone 88-54-1 since the 2010 season. He is 9-5 in the playoffs, including two Super Bowl appearances.

The Seahawks defeated the Broncos following the 2013 season in Super Bowl XLVIII. One year later, they were defeated by the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.

“So grateful to Jody and the organization,” Carroll said. “I love this team and couldn’t be more proud to represent the 12s.”
