Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell after 7 seasons


The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly fired offensive line coach Tom Cable, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

The move has not been confirmed by the team.

It appears the Seattle Seahawks have completely cleaned house.

Recently, Cable was linked as a strong candidate to become the head coach for the Indianapolis Colts, who fired Chuck Pagano upon the conclusion of the season.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll could be starting a major overhaul of his assistant coaches. Rather than a run from the 1-yard line in the final minute, Bevell called for a pass that was intercepted by Malcolm Butler and cost Seattle its chance at a second straight title.

Despite the heartbreaking loss, Seattle's offense had one of its most productive seasons the following year. Seattle finished fourth overall in points and passing yards (4,061) and third overall in rushing (2,268).

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin launched into a passionate defence of Bevell's performance after the season.

Seattle fell to 23rd in rushing in 2017, with Wilson leading the team on the ground with 586 yards.

Despite quarterback Russell Wilson leading the National Football League with 34 touchdown passes this season, the Seahawks struggled to stay consistent, finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011. "Offensively that's what we've seen time and time again is we do not execute the way that we should", Baldwin said. A native of Merced, Calif., he has made pit stops with college programs such as UNLV, Cal, UCLA and Colorado to oversee the offensive lines.

"We don't execute as a team". "That's on us as players. You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter us, Bev is not the problem".
