Seahawks Hire Darrell Bevell

The Seattle Seahawks have hired Darrell Bevell for their offensive coordinator position, ESPN's John Clayton reports.

Originally expected to interview for the Seahawks' vacant quarterbacks coach position, Bevell became a candidate for the coordinator position when Jeremy Bates was fired on Tuesday.

Bevell has spent the previous five seasons as the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator, but was not expected back after the team fired head coach Brad Childress and hired interim head coach Leslie Frazier on a permanent basis.

Frazier hired former Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave for their coordinator position on Wednesday.

Before joining the Vikings in 2006, Bevell spent six seasons with the Green Bay Packers, coaching the team's quarterbacks from 2003-05. Bevell's tenure with the Packers began as an offensive assistant in 2000, Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck's final season in Green Bay.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider worked in the Packers' personnel department when Bevell was on the team's coaching staff.

Packer envy. It's a good sign when other teams covet our castoffs.
