Carroll just won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks in his 4th year in Seattle. Last season, Saints coach Sean Payton was the highest paid at $8 million, followed by Patriots coach Bill Belichick ($7.5M), Chiefs coach Andy Reid ($7.5M), and Carroll ($7M). The Hawks are expected to make the announcement tomorrow morning at 10:30am.
Carroll will surely be the highest paid coach in the NFL after tomorrow's announcement. The 62-year-old is only the 3rd coach to win an NCAA title and Super Bowl championship.
