The Seattle Seahawks and head coach Pete Carroll are reportedly working on a contract extension."

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has been one of the best coaches in the NFL since arriving in Seattle, and the 64-year-old doesn't plan to hang it up any time soon, heading into the last year of his contract. The Seahawks are negotiating a contract extension with the coveted head coach, as they are looking to lock him up, according to NFL reporter Ian Rapoport.

Carroll posted a 60-36 record in six seasons in Seattle, and is reportedly expected to remain one of the top three highest paid coaches in the league. He has arguably been the best head coach in football, next to the Patriots' Bill Belichick, and has led Seattle to two Super Bowls, including the team's win during the 2013 season.

The Seahawks have reformed themselves under Carroll with a dominant defense led at the back end with the "Legion of Boom" and a young franchise quarterback who has many years ahead of him in Russell Wilson. The Seahawks lost a key piece this offseason with running back Marshawn Lynch retiring, but both Carroll and General Manager John Schneider have been terrific at finding pieces to fit in their system, such as rookie running back Thomas Rawls last season.

Both Seattle's front office and coaching staff are heavily focused on the 2016 NFL Combine this weekend, as they look to analyze every detail on potential draft prospects. While it's unknown who the Seahawks will look to draft in April, whoever they select will join a team with one of the greatest coaching staffs in football and will benefit from joining an organization that helps players progress to another level.
