Darrell Bevell has left the Minnesota Vikings. Bevell has been hired by the Seattle Seahawks to be their offensive coordinator.
The move was first reported by ESPN’s John Clayton. The Seahawks offensive coordinator job became available once the team fired Jeremy Bates. Inconsistent play calling led to Bates’ firing.
This past season as the Vikings offensive coordinator, Bevell managed to have an offense that was in flux. His friend, Brett Favre, and the rest of the offensive players failed to live up to their 2009 expectations. In 2010, Bevell managed a 23rd ranked offense in yards and a 29th ranked offense in points.
In 2009, Bevell’s offense ranked fifth in yards and second in points in Favre’s best season of his career. This will be Bevell’s 5th season as an offensive coordinator in the NFL, after being named offensive coordinator by the Vikings in 2006.
