Carroll won Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks back in 2014 following a 43-8 demolition of the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium in New York.

The new will be positively received by the Seahawks fans who have seen a very successful period under Carroll.

Seattle have possessed the highest scoring defense in the league for two of the last three seasons and have made the play offs four years in a row.

While Carroll is widely regarded as one of the top head coaches in the NFL, his lasting legacy may be one of the biggest Super Bowl blunders in NFL history.

From Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots, Carroll famously chose to pass while his team were on the one yard line leading to the infamous Malcolm Butler interception that won New England the Super Bowl.

Despite that, the Seahawks will be hoping that Carroll can once again take the team to the big game in 2016.
