Could Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell be on his way out for a head coaching gig at Wisconsin?

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The Wisconsin Badgers are currently looking for a head coach, and one name that's been floated as a possibility is Darrell Bevell, present offensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks. Adam Hoge of CBS reports, via Twitter, that Bevell, along with Chris Peterson, Mel Tucker and Al Golden are all "legit candidates," for the Badgers job.

Bevell is getting some notice due to the Seahawks' strong play this season. Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has done some big things for the Seahawks, and Bevell is the one drawing up and calling the plays that are making him successful. The offense hasn't been high octane or among the NFL's elite, but he unquestionably has the Seahawks on the right path.

SB Nation's Bucky's 5th Quarter has been looking at the rumored candidates for the job, and they put Bevell's chances of actually being the next head coach as pretty slim, but noted that it might be a strong move for the casual fan. That said, the writer in question doesn't seem set on the idea.
