The Seattle Seahawk offense hasn’t looked very powerful so far this year but you can’t deny two trips to the Super Bowl. Back to back. Bevell took a mid-round pick named Russell Wilson and turned him into a Super Star.
Bevel is due for a promotion. He has been an offensive coordinator 10 seasons. Five with Minnesota and five with Seattle. Would he have interest in traveling from the furthest Northwest city in the NFL to the Southeastern most? Maybe.
Bevel is a very good coach who has rode a lot of quarterbacks to success and is doing the same with Wilson in Seattle. Bevel loves the play action pass and in Miami he has a quarterback who could pull it off and the rumblings of a running game that could sell it. His biggest challenge of course would be to fix the offensive line.
With ten years of coordinator experience, Bevel has a lot of ties in the NFL and it’s very likely that he could bring in a strong defensive coach and a very solid offensive coordinator. The reality here is that last season the Seahawks lost their defensive coordinator and this year they very well could lose their offensive coordinator.
