What's expected to be an offseason makeover for the Seattle Seahawks is starting with its coaching staff.
ProFootballTalk first reported the dismissal of Bevell, a former assistant coach with the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers quarterback when UW won the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1994. The Seahawks have not announced Bevell's firing, though the move would not be unexpected.
Although they still managed to finish with a 9-7 record, Seattle was absolutely decimated with injuries throughout the 2017-18 season and looks to immediately turn things around next season.
The Seahawks, who missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011, had only four rushing touchdowns all season, which tied for last in the NFL.
More details are in this ESPN story.
The Seahawks also ended the 2014 season with perhaps the most infamous play in Super Bowl history, an interception of Wilson by Malcolm Butler at the one-yard line in the final seconds that preserved a 28-24 New England victory.
Darrell Bevell's time in Seattle has come to an end. You guys (media) can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is, Bev is not the problem. The former Washington and USC coach worked for Carroll with the Trojans. Bevell would be the first Seahawks coordinator to be fired since Bates. Seattle was 12th in 2016 and ranked in the bottom half of the league from 2011 to 2013.
The Seahawks have fired seven-year offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, according to Pro Football Talk. He called the plays in Seattle's 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl following the 2015 season. Additionally, he led the Seahawks in rushing with 586 yards and three touchdowns. The trademark running game over the past two seasons has withered, a span that coincides with the departure of Marshawn Lynch. Cable, who joined Seattle's staff the same year as Bevell, is also not assured of being brought back next season.
