Seahawks fire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

Wednesday afternoon, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times tweeted the news offensive line coach Tom Cable had been fired.

The Seahawks have not confirmed the firing of Bevell, who became OC in 2011 succeeding Jeremy Bates, who served in that position in 2010, head coach Pete Carroll's first year in Seattle.

Late Tuesday night, a story broke reporting offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell had been relieved of his duties.

But after a disappointing 9-7 season in 2017 in which Seattle missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011 the Seahawks have chose to start over with their offensive coaching staff.

That lost Super Bowl came at the end of a 2014 season in which Seattle set a team record for rushing yards with 2,762 yards. "We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations we're going to be in".

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. We don't execute as a team.

It was the Seahawks' final offensive play of Super Bowl XLIX three years ago that drew the most heat from Seahawks fans. And that's on us as players. "Probably already said too much". With Bevell as a part of the coaching staff, Seattle captured a postseason berth in five consecutive seasons from 2012-16. The Seahawks appear to be cleaning house after missing the playoffs.

It's unclear who the Seahawks will turn to as a replacement for Bevell.

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is a rumored potential candidate to replace Bevell. The former Washington and USC coach worked for Carroll with the Trojans. Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie is a close friend of Seattle GM John Schneider.
