The Seahawks fired their offensive coordinator Wednesday after seven seasons with the team, the team announced Wednesday. I've always been here to help our guys, and I want them to go and do what they're capable of doing and meet their challenges of their lifetime as well, and I'm up for that.
A source told the Times earlier Tuesday that the team was still evaluating coaching positions in the wake of a 9-7 season that saw Seattle miss the playoffs for the first time since 2011.
One potential candidate to replace Bevell is Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.
Richard has been with Carroll dating to Carroll's days as USC's head coach. Carroll's only other significant firing was offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates following the 2010 season, Carroll's first in Seattle.
