According to reports from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell interviewed for the head coaching job of the Washington Redskins on Tuesday. Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen flew to Seattle on Tuesday to meet with Bevell.
Bevell has been the OC for Seattle the past three seasons, spending time in Green Bay and Minnesota as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator in previous stints. Bevell has earned a reputation as being able to work well with quarterbacks, and he’s given much credit for the development of young star quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson had a similar skill set to Robert Griffin III, so it’s not hard to see why the ‘Skins would be interested; not to mention the fact that Bevell has also worked with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers in the past.
Bevell likes a mostly balanced offensive attack,while slightly favoring the run opposed to the pass, featuring a power running game which sets up the play action pass. This figures to suit well with a power running back like Alfred Morris.
The Redskins are reportedly planning to interview Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott this weekend. Unless Bevell blows Allen and company away in the interview process, we likely won’t get word on a hire before the weekend. There’s also the possibility of Baylor coach Art Briles getting the job here in D.C., so the next couple weeks will be interesting to say the least.
