Darrell Bevell fired as offensive coordinator of the Seahawks

Darrell Bevell fired as offensive coordinator of the Seahawks

Seattle ranked 15th in the National Football League in total offense last season, but sputtered badly late in the campaign, gaining only a combined 285 yards against the Los Angeles Rams (149) and Dallas Cowboys (136).

Rather than having his team hand the ball to running back Marshawn Lynch, Bevell called a pass, and Wilson was intercepted on 2nd-and-goal from the Patriots' 1-yard line with just seconds remaining by Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler. The Seahawks finished 15th out of 32 teams in total offense last season.

Mike Green will represent Red Wings at All-Star Game
This season, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound forward has posted 43 points (17 goals, 26 assists) and a plus-19 rating through 45 games. This season, Pietrangelo has collected 29 points (seven goals, 22 assists) and a plus-15 rating through 41 games.

The house cleaning comes after the Seahawks disappointing season in which they posted a 9-7 record and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011. Coach Pete Carroll left the door open for potential coaching changes when he said after the season that the staff would be evaluated.

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.

President Juan Orlando Hernandez tweeted that the emergency system had been activated and people should remain calm. A tsunami advisory signals a threat to those in or near water, as strong currents and waves could be risky .

It was the Seahawks' final offensive play of Super Bowl XLIX three years ago that drew the most heat from Seahawks fans. Still, wide receiver Doug Baldwin defended Bevell when the season came to an end. Per Rapoport, the Seahawks are letting Richard pursue "another opportunity", although it's unclear what that opportunity is. "We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations we're going to be in".

One possibility is former UW coach Steve Sarkisian, who worked under Carroll at USC from 2001-04 and again from 2006-08, and has been the offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons this season after having worked at Alabama in 2016. It's part of the reason Seattle's run game was so dominant in those four seasons. And that's on us as players.
