According to Jason La Canfora, the Indianapolis Colts have been in discussions with former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell for weeks about their offensive coordinator position.
Now that the Colts are reportedly set to hire Eagles OC Frank Reich as their new head coach, offensive coordinator is the last notable coaching position Indianapolis still has to fill.
It’s worth mentioning that Ballard and Bevell played college football together at the University of Wisconsin.
The Colts will likely have competition for Bevell from the Giants, who weren’t able to get an interview with Vikings QBs coach Kevin Stefanski and many think the Eagles could also block New York from speaking to RBs coach Duce Staley.
Bevell, 48, began his NFL coaching career with the Packers as an assistant quarterbacks coach in 2000. He eventually worked his way up to QBs coach before being hired by the Vikings as their offensive coordinator in 2006.
After five years in Minnesota, Bevell signed on with the Seahawks for the 2011 season and spent the past seven years in Seattle before he was recently fired.
In 2017, the Seahawks’ offense was No. 15 in total yards, No. 11 in points scored, No. 23 in yards rushing and No. 14 in passing offense.
