Pat Carroll (born September 10, 1982) is a retired American professional basketball player. He is a shooting guard who is a three-point specialist.

Carroll is 6'5" is tall and weighs 190 lbs. He played high school basketball at Hatboro-Horsham High School in Horsham, Pennsylvania under coach Walt Ostrowski. He played college basketball at the Saint Joseph's University for Phil Martelli and played with Chris Michaels and future National Basketball Association players Jameer Nelson, Delonte West and Dwayne Jones, being an integral part of Saint Joe's NCAA Elite Eight run in the 2003-2004 season, his junior year.

He, with his brother, Matt, who starred at the University of Notre Dame and now plays for the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, and his grandfather, legendary Pennsylvania high school coach Don Graham began Carroll Camps, a basketball camp run by the brothers to teach the fundamentals of basketball, specifically shooting.

Like his brother, Carroll went undrafted out of college. He has been playing in Europe after going unsigned by an NBA team, having unsuccessful tries so far. After injuring his shoulder in a game in Italy in 2005, Carroll returned to the U.S. to undergo surgery and rehabilitate, missing the entire season.

On July 2, 2006, it was reported in The Philadelphia Inquirer that the Houston Rockets had invited Carroll to play on its summer league team in Las Vegas from July 6–14. On August 17, 2006, Carroll signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks but was waived October 15 before the 2006-07 season started. He would spend that season with France's BCM Gravelines.

Pat also played for the Iowa Energy in the NBA D-League.
