The Seattle Seahawks have awarded Super Bowl-winning coach Pete Carroll a three-year contract extension.

Carroll's original five-year deal, signed with the team in January 2010, was set to expire after the 2014 season.

Carroll has proven his attitude and approach can work in the NFL during his third stint as a head coach at the pro level.

He has preached competition with his players and it has shown with the emergence of stars like quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman.

Carroll is 38-26 in four regular seasons with Seattle and 5-2 in the playoffs. At the age of 62, Carroll is the second-oldest head coach in the NFL.
