Seahawks fire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

  • BREAKING REPORT Seahawks fire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

Additionally, he led the Seahawks in rushing with 586 yards and three touchdowns.

The Seahawks, who were also 23rd in rushing (101.8), ended up with a 9-7 mark and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

As our friend Seth Wickersham outlined in a feature story a year ago, the Seahawks -- and Sherman in particular -- could never get over their gut-wrenching Super Bowl loss.

For fans in the Pacific Northwest, this is likely positive news.

This is significant in that one previous report suggested Cable was in line to replace Bevell as the team's offensive coordinator. The play of the offensive line has been subpar in recent seasons and the Seahawks have tried high draft picks, free agent signings and a trade for left tackle Duane Brown in hopes of perking things up without finding much success. Offensively, that's what we've seen countless time and time again that we do not execute the way we should.




The Seahawks have fired offensive line coach and assistant head coach Tom Cable, a source has told the Seattle Times. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter us, Bev is not the problem".

Bevell oversaw Seattle's offense during the most successful run in franchise history, which included five straight playoff appearances and two trips to the Super Bowl, and played a role in the development of quarterback Russell Wilson.

Prior to his time in Seattle, Bevell served as the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings for five years between 2006 and 2010. But according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, coach Pete Carroll believes Richard, who has been with Carroll his entire coaching career, would "benefit from experiencing something new".

It appears the Seattle Seahawks have completely cleaned house.
