Seahawks fire Darrell Bevell following lackluster December

Seahawks fire Darrell Bevell following lackluster December

Fresh off news that the team has fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and are allowing Kris Richard to explore other opportunities, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Seattle has fired offensive line coach Tom Cable. Cable has been with the Seahawks since 2011.

The Seahawks were 11th in that category in 2017, and they ranked 15th in total offense.

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

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.

Bevell's most controversial moment, though, came in Seattle's Super Bowl XLIX loss. The Seahawks appear to be cleaning house after missing the playoffs.

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. Richard, 38, is a riser in the coaching ranks and has interviewed for the Bills and Colts' head-coach jobs the past two offseasons.

Richard has been with Carroll dating to Carroll's days as USC's head coach. Richard followed Carroll to the Seahawks, ultimately becoming the defensive coordinator in 2015 when former DC Dan Quinn went to become the head coach of the Falcons.

With the offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and QBs coaches now reportedly gone, the Seahawks are experiencing a lot of turnover.
