Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell after 7 seasons

Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell after 7 seasons

Fresh off news that the team has fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and are allowing Kris Richard to explore other opportunities, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Seattle has fired offensive line coach Tom Cable.

The Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, according to a report from Curtis Crabtree of ProFootballTalk Tuesday night.

Coach Pete Carroll said after a disappointing 2017 season that the staff would be evaluated.

Despite quarterback Russell Wilson leading the National Football League with 34 touchdown passes this season, the Seahawks struggled to stay consistent, finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

Bevell's popularity with the Seahawks fans declined after the team lost Super Bowl XLIX to the New England Patriots on an interception at the goal line.

Under Bevell, the Seahawks also set a club record with 6,012 total yards in 2014 and broke that a year later with 6,058. "It's not play-calling. We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations we're going to be in".

The 48-year-old Bevell served as an offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings for five seasons before venturing to the Pacific Northwest in 2011. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is that Bev's not the problem".

Richard has been with Carroll dating to Carroll's days as USC's head coach. Bevell would be the first Seahawks coordinator to be fired since Bates. The Seahawks also ranked in the top 10 in scoring from 2012 through 2015, including fourth in 2015 when they scored the second most points in franchise history.

They managed just one rushing touchdown from a running back all season and Wilson finished as the team's leading rusher. It's part of the reason Seattle's run game was so dominant in those four seasons. He called the plays in Seattle's 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl following the 2015 season.
