Darrell Bevell Reportedly Offered Seattle Seahawks Offensive Coordinator Job

If nothing else, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll works fast. Just one day after firing offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, Carroll was hard at work searching for his replacement. On Wednesday morning, during his season wrap-up conference call, Carroll floated a name, saying the Seahawks would be interviewing Darrell Bevell later in the day. Now, it appears Bevell has been offered the job.

According to ESPN’s John Clayton, Bevell flew to Seattle on Wednesday, was offered the job and is currently negotiating a contract.

Bevell flew to Seattle on Tuesday for a two-day interview with head coach Pete Carroll. After the interview, he was offered the job and contract talks have started. The source said the negotiations should be concluded within the next day.

It’s looking more and more like this will be a quick transition, with the details finalized sooner rather than later. If Carroll continues to move at the speed he has been, expect Bates’ replacement to be announced by the end of the day on Thursday.

We’ll be back with more on Bevell and what he may bring to the Seahawks tomorrow. For the latest on the Seahawks coaching changes, stay tuned to this StoryStream.
