Seahawks part ways with offensive line coach Tom Cable

"It's a awful memory", Bevell said in 2016, prior to a rematch between the Seahawks and Patriots.

But Seattle fell to 23rd in rushing in 2017, with Wilson leading the team on the ground with 586 yards.

Seattle finished 9-7 and missed the postseason for the first time in six years. Bevell guided the Seahawks to five straight playoff appearances and two trips to the Super Bowl.

Bevell's popularity with the Seahawks fans declined after the team lost Super Bowl XLIX to the New England Patriots on an interception at the goal line.

Cable is being let go along with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who was told on Tuesday night he would be let go. But it's apparent his end was sealed three years ago.

Under Bevell, the Seahawks also set a club record with 6,012 total yards in 2014 and broke that a year later with 6,058. Later, Sherman said the play's success was irrelevant. Offensively, that's what we've seen countless time and time again that we do not execute the way we should. You guys (media) can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is, Bev is not the problem. Bevell was likely dismissed because the Seahawks finished 15th in total offense this season and had an atrocious offensive line.

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is a rumored potential candidate to replace Bevell. But according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, coach Pete Carroll believes Richard, who has been with Carroll his entire coaching career, would "benefit from experiencing something new".

Bevell's playcalling helped put Seattle at or near the top of the league in rushing from 2012-2015, but much of that was also due to the presence of running back Marshawn Lynch, Wilson's scrambling ability, and an offensive line that was better in the earlier half of Bevell's tenure.
