Seahawks fire Darrell Bevell following lackluster December

Seahawks fire Darrell Bevell following lackluster December

With Bevell as a part of the coaching staff, Seattle captured a postseason berth in five consecutive seasons from 2012-16.

The Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell after seven seasons with the team, multiple outlets reported.

This is significant in that one previous report suggested Cable was in line to replace Bevell as the team's offensive coordinator.

Bevell's Seahawks tenure may best be remembered for his role in the play call that cost Seattle Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots in February 2015. But it does tell us a story of a Seahawks franchise that's going to see wholesale changes following a disappointing 9-7 campaign.

Trevor Noah explains why Oprah is the best opponent for Trump
And here's a suggestion she might want to look at... "Can you imagine Oprah as president?" You are too mean and unrelatable . The gif of her joyously screaming, "You get a auto !" You don't get deported! "And you get a auto !" will be ubiquitous.

The Seahawks, however, have not officially announced the move as of Wednesday morning. "We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations that we're going to be in".

Bevell, a former quarterback at Wisconsin, came to Seattle following a stint as the offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings from 2006-10. We don't execute as a team. You guys (media) can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is, Bev is not the problem.

Much of Seattle's offensive success this season was due to quarterback Russell Wilson, who threw for 3,983 yards and an NFL-leading 34 touchdowns. Sarkisian was UW's coach from 2009-13 before leaving to become the head coach at USC in 2014 before being fired early in the 2015 season for several alcohol-related incidents.

The Seahawks' running game in particular has struggled over the past two seasons. Cable, who joined Seattle's staff the same year as Bevell, is also not assured of being brought back next season. Additionally, he led the Seahawks in rushing with 586 yards and three touchdowns.
