Seahawks assistants Darrell Bevell and Tom Cable talk about head coaching opportunities

Today marked the first chance Seattle media had to talk with Seahawks assistant coaches Darrell Bevell and Tom Cable, who each interviewed last week for head coaching jobs elsewhere.

Bevell, Seattle’s offensive coordinator, had an interview with the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills, while Cable, Seattle’s offensive line coach and assistant head coach, spoke with the New York Jets.

Each acknowledged the interviews but said their focus now is on coaching with Seattle through the playoffs — neither can be hired or do additional interviews until the Seahawks’ season is completed.

Said Cable: “For me it’s about just getting ready for this game really. I have a great job and I love what I have and so whatever comes of that is just a product of everybody here.”

Asked if he’d like to be a head coach again someday — he was head coach of the Raiders from 2008-10 — he said: “When the right situation come my way, you bet. But like I said, I have a tremendous place to be at, great group of guys to coach and good coaches to coach with. So I’m as good as you can get.”

Bevell said he doesn’t know where things stand with the jobs he has interviewed for but said “it’s pretty neat just to have that (opportunity). It’s pretty neat just to feel that respect. But that’s last week, you know, and its full on to Carolina and sure that I am preparing myself and preparing these guys to be able to be successful this week.”

Bevell said he did not think it difficult to interview last week and then coach this week.

“Because  we had the bye week I don’t think it’s as big of a deal,” he said. “We didn’t even know who we played until late Sunday. So able to get that (interviews) done, put it behind us. If we didn’t have it (the bye) then it would’t be something I would even mess with, I don’t think.”
