Pete Carroll made another staff move Tuesday involving a former USC assistant coach.

The Seahawks announced Rocky Seto, the NFL team’s defensive passing game coordinator the last two seasons, had been promoted to assistant head coach.

Seto played at USC and coached linebackers and the secondary for the Trojans before joining Carroll's NFL staff in 2010.

Seto's promotion came a day after the Seahawks announced several staff moves involving former USC coaches and players.
