The Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell after seven seasons, a source confirmed to ESPN.

ProFootballTalk first reported the dismissal of Bevell, a former assistant coach with the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers quarterback when UW won the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1994. Coach Pete Carroll left the door open for potential coaching changes when he said after the season that the staff would be evaluated. Bevell was likely dismissed because the Seahawks finished 15th in total offense this season and had an atrocious offensive line.

More details are in this ESPN story. As Crabtree notes, Seattle ranked just 23rd in the league in rushing and got 586 of their 1,629 rushing yards from Wilson.

The 48-year-old Bevell served as an offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings for five seasons before venturing to the Pacific Northwest in 2011.

"We've already seen how that goes", he explained to reporters.

Richard has been the Seahawks' defensive coordinator for each of the past three seasons. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is that Bev's not the problem".

While this era's Seahawks have never been known as an offensive juggernaut, Bevell lead them to two top-10 finishes in total offense during his tenure, finishing as high as fourth place in 2015.

Bevell oversaw Seattle's offense during the most successful run in franchise history, which included five straight playoff appearances and two trips to the Super Bowl, and played a role in the development of quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks situation would be interesting in a number of ways with Sarkisian on board, especially through the prism of Russell Wilson's skill set and what has been a disastrous offensive line situation for quite some time.

Bevell acknowledged the difficulties of the season during his final press conference of the year, and likely, with the Seahawks.
