Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has a new three-year deal which runs through 2016. This is a new deal, not an extension of the old one, Todd Dybas of the Tacoma Tribune reports.
“I feel very humbled and fortunate,” Carroll said. “It’s a day of gratitude for me.”
Carroll, 62, said he feels like the Seahawks are “right in the middle” of a run.
“The most important thing that happens is we rediscover every year — not just this year because it’s a Super Bowl year — every year we rediscover the work ethic that makes us who we are,” Carroll said. “That starts with the commitment our players have made to make this the greatest offseason of their life.
“We treat people in a manner, I think, that we can ask of them to give us everything they possibly have. It’s a fantastic opportunity to go for this. Yeah, one time’s cool and we’re excited and all that, but to come back and figure out a way to show you can do it again, it’s another tremendous challenge we’re faced with now. Russell (Wilson) and the fellas are ready to go. They can’t wait to get back.”
