We learned this week from ESPN NFC West writer Mike Sando that Pete Carroll the Head coach of the Seattle Seahawks is the 2nd highest paid head coach in the NFL.

The Forbes' list of 10 highest-paid coaches came out this week.

Quote: Bill Belichick Patriots $7.5M
Pete Carroll Seahawks $7.0M
Jeff Fisher Rams $7.0M
Mike Shanahan Redskins $7.0M
Doc Rivers Celtics $7.0M
Lovie Smith Bears $6.0M
Gregg Popovich Spurs $6.0M
Ken Whisenhunt Cardinals $5.8M
Mike Tomlin Steelers $5.8M
Andy Reid Eagles $5.5M Sando reports coaches presumably do not make available their contracts or tax returns, so these listings qualify as unofficial.

They are generally consistent with media reports, at least.
