Pete Carroll is losing his QB coach, Austin Davis, to the Auburn Tigers, where Davis will become the new offensive coordinator.

But, on his way out of Seattle, Davis drew some praise from the Seahawks’ head coach.

As you can see below, Carroll had plenty of nice things to say about the incoming Auburn coordinator:

“Austin is going to show that he is one of the bright young minds in the game,” Carroll said. “He’s been able to transition from player to coach unlike anybody I’ve ever seen. It was just so smooth for him, and he’s been thinking like a coach for a long time, obviously because he was able to capture the role. Russ (Wilson) thinks the world of him, Shane (Waldron) thinks the world of him, and I do too because he is really, really good at what he does. He is going to really be a big benefit to their program.”

Davis will take over for Mike Bobo, who was let go after only 1 season as Auburn’s offensive coordinator. We’ll see how Davis’s offense fares in 2022 and beyond.
