The Seahawks have fired offensive line coach Tom Cable, a source told the Seattle Times Wednesday afternoon.

The Seahawks missed the playoffs for the first time since Bevell's first season in Seattle.

Bevell had been the Seahawks' offensive coordinator since 2011, helping to guide them to two Super Bowl appearances and one title.

Bevell's dismissal comes on the heels of the Seahawks finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

This story will be updated. "We go into a game knowing what the defense is going to give us, the situations that we're going to be in". With Bevell as a part of the coaching staff, Seattle captured a postseason berth in five consecutive seasons from 2012-16.

Seattle's offense was unable to find consistency this season despite Russell Wilson leading the league in touchdown passes with 34. "You guys can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter us, Bev is not the problem".

The Seahawks also ended the 2014 season with perhaps the most infamous play in Super Bowl history, an interception of Wilson by Malcolm Butler at the one-yard line in the final seconds that preserved a 28-24 New England victory.

Immediately, there was speculation Cable could also be assuming the offensive coordinator duties. Cable, who joined Seattle's staff the same year as Bevell, is also not assured of being brought back next season.

It's unclear who the Seahawks will turn to as a replacement for Bevell.

Prior to his time in Seattle, Bevell served as the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings for five years between 2006 and 2010.

And another could be Mike Shula, who was sacked as offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers earlier this week and was the head coach at Alabama from 2003-06.
