Seahawks fire Darrell Bevell as OC

REPORT: Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell

In his seven seasons as Seahawks offensive coordinator, Bevell guided them into the top 10 in points scored four times. The team was particularly poor at running the football, as it placed just 23rd in rushing offense in 2017.

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.

Bevell's most controversial moment, though, came in Seattle's Super Bowl XLIX loss.

The 48-year-old Bevell joined the Seahwaks in 2011 after spending the previous five seasons serving as Vikings offensive coordinator. But it's apparent his end was sealed three years ago.

Panthers coach signs extension on eve of wild card game
The Panthers have been inconsistent during his tenure, with four losing seasons. Subsequently in late December, the team was slotted to move to new ownership.

"It's not playcalling. It's not playcalling", Baldwin said.

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. With Bevell as a part of the coaching staff, Seattle captured a postseason berth in five consecutive seasons from 2012-16. "We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations we're going to be in. You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is that Bev's not the problem".

One possibility is former UW coach Steve Sarkisian, who worked under Carroll at USC from 2001-04 and again from 2006-08, and has been the offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons this season after having worked at Alabama in 2016.

Last season, cornerback Richard Sherman screamed at the coaching staff after Russell Wilson threw a touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin on the one-yard line in a Thursday night game against the Rams. The Seahawks appeared in back-to-back Super Bowls in 2013 and 2014, winning Super Bowl XLVIII to earn the franchise its first ever Lombardi Trophy.
