Seahawks fire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

Darrell Bevell Reportedly Fired as Seahawks OC After 7 Seasons with Team

After a season which the team's production landed well short of expectations, Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks elected to move on from long-time offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. "Bevell was told of the decision Tuesday night according to a source informed of the decision", according to 950 KJR Seattle's Curtis Crabtree.

The firing would be the first of a coordinator for the Seahawks since the removal of Bates following the 2010 season.

While Seattle has enjoyed a tremendous run of success in recent seasons - this is the first time since 2011 the team hasn't been part of the playoffs, making back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, with one win, in that span - Bevell's play-calling has often come under fire.

More details are in this ESPN story. Seattle was 15th in total offense and 11th in scoring but had particular trouble moving the ball in December, producing fewer than 150 yards in both a Week 15 loss to the Los Angeles Rams and a Week 16 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The former Washington and USC coach worked for Carroll with the Trojans.

A New York Fire Department spokesperson explained: "We had one minor injury to a firefighter - some debris fell on him". Aerial views showed firefighters on the roof, with smoke billowing from one corner of the high-rise.

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.

While this era's Seahawks have never been known as an offensive juggernaut, Bevell lead them to two top-10 finishes in total offense during his tenure, finishing as high as fourth place in 2015. Seattle was 12th in 2016 and ranked in the bottom half of the league from 2011 to 2013.

The Seahawks had just four rushing touchdowns as a team, and Mike Davis was their leading rusher among running backs with just 240 yards.

What's next for the Seattle Seahawks? In the grand scheme, that was not stunning given the buzz surrounding his status but, with that move in the background, whispers about who could replace him in Seattle are more of a surprise.
