Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell head coach Pete Carroll and quarterback Russell Wilson figure out what to do on the final possession

Recently, Cable was linked as a strong candidate to become the head coach for the Indianapolis Colts, who fired Chuck Pagano upon the conclusion of the season.

Seattle has been backsliding since appearing in the Super Bowl three years ago.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll could be starting a major overhaul of his assistant coaches.

Bevell's most controversial moment, though, came in Seattle's Super Bowl XLIX loss. Bevell was in charge of calling plays, while Cable was responsible for a run game and offensive line that failed to meet expectations.

On the heels of earlier reports that offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell had been fired and defensive coordinator Kris Richard had been encouraged to look for a job elsewhere, the Seahawks appeared headed toward a new chapter of the Pete Carroll-John Schneider era. Wilson had over 4,000 yards through the air and the team averaged 141 rushing yards per game.

Johnson dominates in Tournament of Champions victory
Johnson won for the 17th time on the PGA Tour, and the fifth time dating to the Genesis Open at Riviera last February. Still to be determined is how Rory McIlroy returns this year, and Justin Thomas certainly has the power and game.

On Jan 1, during the Seahawks' locker room cleanout, wide receiver Doug Baldwin cautioned against placing blame on Bevell for Seattle's struggles.

The house cleaning comes after the Seahawks disappointing season in which they posted a 9-7 record and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011. Instead, Wilson threw the now infamous interception that left people across the league scratching their heads and the New England Patriots with their fourth Lombardi Trophy. He was named both offensive line coach and assistant head coach.

"It's not play-calling", Baldwin said.

"We don't execute as a team". Offensively, that's what we've seen time and time again is that we do not execute the way that we should. And that's on us as players. You guys can blame (Bevell) as much as you want to.
