Jeremy Bates Fired As Seattle Seahawks Offensive Coordinator, Accoring To Report

The offeseason is here for the Seattle Seahawks and Pete Carroll is already making some staff changes. Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates was fired on Tuesday, just two days after the Seahawks season ended in Chicago. Bates came to Seattle with Pete Carroll after coaching the quarterbacks at USC in 2009.

The news was reported by NFL Network's Michael Lombardi on Twitter.

The move comes as a surprise, though the Seattle offense was statistically among the worst in the NFL. Averaging just 89 yards per game on the ground, the rushing offense ranked 31st in the league. The passing game wasn't much better, ranked 19th in the league, averaging just 208.8 yards per game.

Bates appears to be the fall guy as Carroll will again look to reform his staff after the Seahawks playoff run this season. Stay tuned to our StoryStream for the latest offseason moves and more on Bates' firing
