Seahawks fire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

They managed just one rushing touchdown from a running back all season and Wilson finished as the team's leading rusher.

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 was at the offensive helm for some of the team's greatest moments as Seattle won the Super Bowl following the 2013 season and then set a franchise record for yards gained in a season in 2015 with 6,058, breaking a mark that had been set the year before with 6,012.

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.

The 48-year-old Bevell joined the Seahwaks in 2011 after spending the previous five seasons serving as Vikings offensive coordinator. It's two years ago.

The Oakland Raiders' head coach from 2008-2010, Cable has led one of the weakest offensive lines in the National Football League over the past seven seasons. The play of the offensive line has been subpar in recent seasons and the Seahawks have tried high draft picks, free agent signings and a trade for left tackle Duane Brown in hopes of perking things up without finding much success. Offensively, that's what we've seen time and time again is that we do not execute the way that we should. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is that Bev's not the problem". The former Washington and USC coach worked with current Seattle coach Pete Carroll with the Trojans. Cable, who joined Seattle's staff the same year as Bevell, is also not assured of being brought back next season.

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is a rumored potential candidate to replace Bevell.
