That report comes a day after the Seahawks dismissed offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and hours after word that they may also be parting ways with defensive coordinator Kris Richard. "It's not play-calling. We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations we're going to be in".
It's unclear who the Seahawks will turn to as a replacement for Bevell. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter us, Bev is not the problem".
Richard has been with Carroll dating to Carroll's days as USC's head coach.
Bevell, a former quarterback at Wisconsin, came to Seattle following a stint as the OC with the Minnesota Vikings. Carroll's only other significant firing was offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates following the 2010 season, Carroll's first in Seattle.
With the offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and QBs coaches now reportedly gone, the Seahawks are experiencing a lot of turnover.
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.
Seattle was ninth in total offense in that 2014 season and fourth in 2015, which marked the only seasons in the top 10 during Bevell's run. Wilson led the team in rushing in 2017 with 586 yards and produced three of the team's four rushing touchdowns. Seattle finished fourth overall in points and passing yards (4,061) and third overall in rushing (2,268). The trademark running game over the past two seasons has withered, a span that coincides with the departure of Marshawn Lynch.
