Seattle Seahawks fire offensive line coach Tom Cable

Seattle Seahawks fire offensive line coach Tom Cable

A source told the Times earlier Tuesday that the team was still evaluating coaching positions in the wake of a 9-7 season that saw Seattle miss the playoffs for the first time since 2011. At season's end, wide receiver Doug Baldwin launched into a spirited defense of his offensive coordinator.

Bevell, the only coordinator fired by Carroll since he axed Bates, oversaw the two biggest back-to-back regular-season wins in franchise history, 58-0 and 50-17 victories over Arizona and Buffalo late in 2012. Per Rapoport, the Seahawks are letting Richard pursue "another opportunity", although it's unclear what that opportunity is. "It's not playcalling", Baldwin said, when asked what ailed Seattle's offense. We don't execute as a team.

Offensive line coach Tom Cable is in charge of Seattle's running game.

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. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter us, Bev is not the problem".

The Seahawks led the National Football League in both yards allowed and points allowed in 2014, the year before Richard became the defensive coordinator. Wilson has been sacked 40 or more times in each of the last five seasons.

They managed just one rushing touchdown from a running back all season and Wilson finished as the team's leading rusher. His popularity among Seattle fans began to decline when the Seahawks fell to the Patriots in Super Bowl 49 due to an interception at the 1-yard line after the team made the controversial decision not to run the ball.
