The Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, according to a report from Curtis Crabtree of ProFootballTalk Tuesday night.

The Seahawks fired their offensive coordinator Wednesday after seven seasons with the team, the team announced Wednesday. "It's not play-calling. We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations we're going to be in". Per Rapoport, the Seahawks are letting Richard pursue "another opportunity", although it's unclear what that opportunity is.

"There's guys up for jobs now, and this is that time of year when stuff happens, and we'll see what goes on", Carroll said. The former Washington and USC coach worked for Carroll with the Trojans.

The firing would be the first of a coordinator for the Seahawks since the removal of Bates following the 2010 season.

Bevell's most controversial moment, though, came in Seattle's Super Bowl XLIX loss.

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

The Seahawks ranked 23rd in rushing last season and ran for only four touchdowns, three by quarterback Russell Wilson.

For fans in the Pacific Northwest, this is likely positive news. The 2012 to 2015 seasons, however, all rank among the top eight in franchise history in terms of points scored.

They managed just one rushing touchdown from a running back all season and Wilson finished as the team's leading rusher. The trademark running game over the past two seasons has withered, a span that coincides with the departure of Marshawn Lynch. He called the plays in Seattle's 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl following the 2015 season.
