It looks like some changes are coming to the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff, courtesy of college football.
Assistant quarterbacks coach Steve Shimko is reportedly headed to the college ranks to coach the Boston College tight ends.
SOURCE: #BostonCollege is hiring Steve Shimko as TE coach. He had been with the #Seahawks. He was recruited to play QB at Rutgers by Greg Schiano, worked for PJ Fleck at WMU and had been on the UGA staff.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) January 17, 2020
Shimko was Seattle’s offensive assistant in 2018 before getting bumped to assistant quarterbacks this season.
Another assistant potentially on his way out is Brennan Carroll, son of head coach Pete Carroll and currently the Seahawks’ assistant offensive line coach. He is reportedly a candidate to take the head coaching job at the University of Hawaii, following former coach Nick Rolovich’s decision to be Washington State’s new head coach.
#Seahawks assistant OL coach Brennan Carroll has emerged as a candidate for the #Hawaii head coaching vacancy. Carroll was a recruiting coordinator at #USC and #Miami before joining his dad's staff in Seattle in 2015.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) January 17, 2020
Unlike Shimko, it’s not set in stone that Brennan is leaving the Seahawks, but it is a possibility. He has been part of Seattle’s staff since 2015 but has never held a position as lofty as head coach, so if he does take the job then it’s a major step-up for him.
Pete’s other son, Nate Carroll, is also part of the Seahawks staff as the wide receivers coach.
