By PFW staff

The Seahawks have signed former Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to the same job. John Clayton of ESPN reports that it's a two-year deal.

Seattle fired their previous coordinator, Jeremy Bates, on Tuesday. Head coach Pete Carroll said he had a
"philosophical issue" with the way Bates was calling plays, and he apparently sees more eye-to-eye with Bevell's approach. Over the last four seasons with Bevell coaching the offense, the Vikings have had one of the league's better units, though they have benefited greatly from having playmakers such as Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin.

Bevell was expected to interview for the Seahawks' opening at QB coach, but when Bates was let go earlier in the week, he was instead brought to the Pacific Northwest to interview for that job.

The way we see it

Seattle ranked 31st in the league in rushing yards per game, which was a major issue for Carroll. Expect the 'Hawks offense under Bevell to be more run-oriented. Having former Raiders head coach Tom Cable on the staff as the offensive line coach should help the run game, as well.
