Arizona hires Brennan Carroll as offensive coordinator

Arizona has hired Brennan Carroll as its offensive coordinator, the program announced Friday. Carroll will also coach the Wildcats' offensive line.

Carroll worked alongside new U of A head coach Jedd Fisch for two seasons at Miami, when Fisch was the Hurricanes' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and Carroll the tight ends and receivers coach.

"Brennan and I have known each other for over 10 years and worked together during the 2011 and 2012 seasons," Fisch said. "I am excited to build this offense together. He has incredible experience, grew up in a football house, been trained by the very best in the business, and has seen a culture of winning his whole life. Brennan's positive attitude is matched by his football acumen. Our offensive linemen will be trained to become professionals both on and off the field. I am excited to work hand in hand with Brennan on developing an offensive system to bring back the winning traditions of Arizona Football."

The oldest son of Pete Carroll, Brennan got his start working on his father's staff as a GA at USC in 2002. He was promoted to tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator in 2004, where he remained until joining the Miami staff.

He spent the last six seasons as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks.

Arizona finished 103rd nationally in yards per play and 118th in scoring, logging 17.4 points per game. Starting quarterback Grant Gunnell has since transferred to Memphis.
