Carroll made his intentions known just a few hours before the Seahawks' regular-season finale against the Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.
The Seahawks need to win and the Atlanta Falcons need to lose to the Carolina Panthers in order for Seattle to make the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season.
Carroll, 66, is the oldest active coach in the NFL, and has been leading Seattle since 2010. Throughout his tenure, he holds a 79-47-1 record while leading the Seahawks to a Super Bowl win against the Denver Broncos to cap the 2013 season.
Carroll's current contract runs through the 2019 season after he signed an extension in the summer of 2016.
