Miami Hurricanes wide receivers coach and national recruiting director Brennan Carroll, Pete's son, will leave The U and join the Seahawks' staff as an offensive assistant, per multiple reports.
Carroll was previously on his father's USC staff, first as an offensive assistant and then as the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. He left for Miami four years ago, where he took over as tight ends coach, then moved to become the receivers coach the last two years. He's built a strong reputation as both a coach and a recruiter, and ESPN's Jeremy Crabtree recently ranked Carroll first in the nation as a recruiter for his 2016 class.

As the recruiting coordinator, Carroll is actively involved with every prospect who ends up with the Canes, and Miami has jumped out of the gate quickly with 12 pledges and seven ESPN Junior 300 commits. He has done some quality work on his own, however, as the primary recruiter for top recruits like inside linebacker Shaquille Quarterman and receiver Ahmmon Richards.
Brennan will join his brother Nate on Pete's staff, and should bring a nice perspective on some Miami draft prospects to the table. A couple to keep an eye are, of course, in groups that Carroll coached at Miami. WR Phillip Dorsett is a favorite of Zach Whitman with some similarities to Arizona's John Brown, and TE Clive Walford has gained some hype as an all around talent at the position. Brennan should also have some unique information on RB Duke Johnson, OT Ereck Flowers, and a few other draft-eligible Hurricanes.
The Seahawks still haven't announced who will coordinate their defense in 2015 -- there have been reports out there that it will be Kris Richard and right now that is the assumption -- but in the meantime, it looks like Seattle is working to fill out the rest of their staff after losing Dan Quinn, Marquand Manuel, and Ken Norton.
