Seattle Seahawks extend General Manager John Schneider thru 2027


The man who helped build the Seahawks organization into one of the NFL’s best franchises over the last decade is sticking around just a little bit longer.

On Tuesday, the Seahawks executive VP and general manager John Schneider, who is in his 11th season with the franchise, officially signed a contract extension that will have him stay in Seattle through 2027.

Statement from Jody Allen:

I am pleased to announce that we have extended the contract of general manager John Schneider through the 2027 draft. 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.

Back in November, the Seahawks extended head coach Pete Carroll through the 2025 season.

And now it looks like the duo of Carroll and Schneider will be sticking around together for the next five seasons, continuing their success that they have been on with the franchise.

With Schneider and Carroll leading the charge, the Seahawks have been to the postseason nine times in the last 11 seasons, and in eight of the past nine seasons.

The team has won five NFC West titles, reached the Super Bowl twice, winning its first one in franchise history back in 2014.

It is also worth noting that the Seahawks have had nine straight winning seasons, which is currently the longest streak in the NFL at the moment.

Recently, rumors swirled around Schneider and the Detroit Lions GM vacancy.


Schneider addressed the rumor as pure speculation, indicating he and his wife "love it here" when speaking of Seattle. 

Now, everyone can officially put any rumor of Schneider leaving to bed.

It's likely a sigh of relief for Seahawks fans as the Schneider and Carroll duo can look to continue their success for years to come. 

And hopefully bring home the franchise's second Lombardi Trophy!
