News broke late Thursday night that the Seahawks and their head coach Pete Carroll agreed to a contract extension, though the terms were not immediately known.

The team is expected to make a statement making the extension official on Friday at 10:30 a.m.

At least one reporter is excited to hear what Carroll says:

Carroll has been exceptional since arriving in Seattle in 2010.

He has a 38-26 record with the Seahawks and a 5-2 record in the postseason. Under his lead, the Seahawks have won the NFC West twice and last season they won the NFC Championship for just the second time in franchise history.

And, of course, Carroll led Seattle to their first Super Bowl win.

Carroll was entering the final year of a five-year, $35 million deal signed in 2010 after he left USC, where he created one of the most successful college dynasties in recent memory.

Carroll is just the third head coach to win an NCAA National Championship and a Super Bowl championship.
