Seahawks GM John Schneider signs contract extension

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider, the architect of two Super Bowl teams, signed a contract extension to remain with the team for six more years.

The team did not announce financial terms for Schneider, who is in his 11th season in the role. Speculation had been building that teams with GM openings, including the Detroit Lions, would pursue him.

His previous contract would have expired after the 2022 draft.

“I am pleased to announce that we have extended the contract of general manager John Schneider through the 2027 draft,” team chairperson Jody Allen said in a news release Tuesday. “For the last decade, John and head coach Pete Carroll have formed a tremendous partnership and the Seahawks have established a successful, unique, and truly winning culture respected throughout sports. I know we are all excited to see that continue.”

Carroll is signed through the 2025 season.

Schneider and Carroll have been together since 2010. In that time, the Seahawks have reached the postseason nine times, including eight of the past nine seasons. They have won five NFC West titles and two NFC championships.

Seattle won Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2, 2014, defeating the Denver Broncos 43-8. They lost Super Bowl XLIX the following season, defeated by the New England Patriots 28-24.

The Seahawks have nine straight winning seasons — the longest mark in the NFL. They finished 2020 with a 12-4 mark and won the NFC West, but lost Saturday’s wild-card game to the Los Angeles Rams, 30-20.

Before joining the Seahawks, Schneider, 49, held a variety of NFL jobs. He was with the Green Bay Packers for eight seasons, joining the team in March 2002 before being promoted to director of football operations in May 2008.
