SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks reached an agreement on a contract extension with coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday, the team announced.

The deal comes two days after the team reached terms on a contract extension with general manager John Schneider.

Carroll, who’s led the team to two Super Bowls – including a victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII – was about to enter the final year of his contract.

Schneider's deal reportedly runs through 2021, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Carroll's will run through 2019.

Carroll has spent six season with the Seahawks, with whom he's compiled a 60-36 record and made the playoffs five times. He also spent three season with the New England Patriots and one more with the Jets.

Carroll also coached the USC Trojans for nine seasons, winning two national titles and four Rose Bowls.

The Seahawks begin training camp on Saturday. They'll play their first preseason games at Kansas City on Aug. 13 in a game televised on the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX.
