ESPN’s John Clayton is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks have hired former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Seattle has been scrambling to get their coaching staff in place since they released Jeremy Bates and it seemed just a matter of time before the Bevell accepted the position.
There are some questions as to whether or not Darrell Bevell is an upgrade to Jeremy Bates. The Vikings finished the 2010 season No. 23 in total yards and No. 29 in points. Bevell will be tested in the upcoming season considering that he will be taking over an offense that has less talented players than he had in Minnesota.
