Brennan Carroll is in his fourth season as the University of Miami's national recruiting coordinator and his second as the wide receivers coach. Carroll was also the tight ends coach during his first two seasons at UM. Carroll came to Coral Gables after spending eight years with Southern California's football program, including six as a full-time assistant. He is the eldest son of former USC head coach and current Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.

In his first season at receivers coach in 2013, Carroll mentored senior Allen Hurns, who set the school single-season receiving record with 1,162 yards.

During his career, Carroll has tutored four NFL talents in Anthony McCoy (Seattle Seahawks), Fred Davis (Washington Redskins), Dominique Byrd (Washington Redskins) and Jordan Cameron (Cleveland Browns).

While at USC, Carroll coached the tight ends. He took on the additional duty of recruiting coordinator beginning in 2007.

In 2009, tight end Anthony McCoy was a sixth-round NFL draft pick following the season.

In 2007, tight end Fred Davis won the Mackey Award, made All-American first team and was a second-round NFL draft pick following the season. Tight end Dominique Byrd was a third-round NFL draft pick following the 2005 season.

Carroll began his coaching career in 2002 as a graduate assistant on the USC staff. He spent that season working with the offense and special teams, then handled the tight ends in 2003.

During Carroll's career with the Trojans, USC won two national championships (2003, 2004) and played in the 2003 Orange Bowl, 2004 Rose Bowl, 2005 Orange Bowl (BCS Championship Game), 2006 Rose Bowl (BCS Championship Game), 2007 Rose Bowl, 2008 Rose Bowl, 2009 Rose Bowl and 2009 Emerald Bowl.

Carroll was a reserve tight end and key special teams player at Pittsburgh for three years (1999-2001). He caught three passes for 25 yards (8.3 average) as a junior in 2000, including one for a touchdown (a 3-yarder versus Boston College). He added a 12-yard reception as a senior in 2001. The Panthers played in the 2000 Bowl and the 2001 Tangerine Bowl. He redshirted the 1998 season.

He spent his 1997 freshman season at Delaware, but did not see action as a reserve tight end. He prepped at Saratoga (Calif.) High, where he starred as a linebacker and also played basketball. He earned his bachelor's degree in social sciences from Pittsburgh in 2001.

Carroll and his wife Amber have a son, Dillon (3) and a daughter, Colbie (1). His father, Pete, was USC's head coach from 2001 to 2009 before taking the head coaching job with the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. His mother, Glena, played volleyball at Pacific. His sister, Jaime, was on the USC women's volleyball team in 2000 and 2001. His brother, Nate, is a 2009 graduate of USC.
