Listen: ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Seahawks firing Darrell Bevell
An offseason of change for the Seahawks got underway late Tuesday night when it was reported that the team was parting ways with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
After finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter told 710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock and Salk that it was only a matter of time until the Seahawks started re-shaping their coaching staff.
“I think there has been talk for quite some time that there would be changes to the Seahawks’ staff,” Schefter said. “They finally have begun to come in. Darrell Bevell is obviously the first casualty here, but there had been a lot of talk since the season ended in disappointment that this team would be making changes. … I think that they’re not really thrilled with how this all ended and they recognized that they needed to make some changes and shake things up a bit and I think that they believe that they’ve got to alter their approach a little bit, come up with some different ideas, some fresh perspectives, and I think this is the start of that.”
