Darrell Bevell staying put as Seahawks offensive coordinator

Cardinals hire Bruce Arians as head coach
ESPN.com

The Arizona Cardinals’ hiring of Bruce Arians means that Darrell Bevell will be returning for a third season as Seattle’s offensive coordinator.

In fact, Bevell received a new contract, according to ESPN. In fact, ESPN reported Bevell withdrew himself from consideration after receiving the new deal, which opens up the possibility that Seattle gave him a financial incentive to stay rather than go to a division rival. Of course, candidates have been known to be given the opportunity to withdraw from consideration after learning they would not be getting the job.

Either way, that helps with Seattle’s continuity going forward.

In an unrelated note, the guy Bevell was hired to replace — Jeremy Bates — was let go by the Bears where he was the quarterbacks coach, which means his last two jobs have lasted one year. That’s surprising considering Bates is very well regarded in terms of his play-calling acumen and strategy.
