The Seattle Seahawks could soon have some coaching vacancies to fill this offseason. 

According to Bruce Feldman of FS1 and The Athletic, Pete Carroll's son, Brennan Carroll, has emerged as a candidate for the vacant head coaching position at Hawaii. Former coach Nick Rolovich has since departed to Pullman as Washington State's new head coach.

Carroll joined his father's coaching staff after serving as a recruiting coordinator at USC and Miami. With the Trojans, Carroll spent time with the offense, special teams and tight ends. Carroll begin his coaching tenure at Miami in 2010, as coach of the tight ends and recruiting coordinator. When Mario Cristobal, now head coach of Oregon, joined Miami's staff, Carroll moved to wide receivers coach.

He's currently an assistant offensive line coach for Seattle, meaning a head coaching gig in Hawaii would be quite the leap for the 40-year-old. 

Seahawks assistant quarterbacks coach Steve Shimko was named as Boston College's tight ends coach on Friday. Shimko joined Pete Carroll's staff in 2018 and helped tutor Russell Wilson to an MVP like season. Wilson finished with 4,110 yards and 31 touchdowns and just five interceptions in 2019.
