Carroll extension coming Friday morning

Here's an updated post:

The Seahawks will announce a contract extension for head coach Pete Carroll on Friday morning, the News Tribune has confirmed.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network was the first to report the extension.

The Seahawks have announced there will be a 10:30 a.m. press conference Friday at the VMAC. They did not say why.

A source has told the News Tribune this will not be a press conference to announce an Earl Thomas extension. 

Three times last season, I asked Pete Carroll if his contract had been extended. Each time, he answered, "I'm doing great," choosing not to answer the question. As Rapoport notes, Carroll was heading into the final year of his contract.

Carroll, a spry 62, has been coaching since 1973.
