Falcons coach Dan Quinn was on the same coaching staff with Darrell Bevell in Seattle and there’s reportedly a chance that the two men will be working together again in 2018.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Bevell is set to interview for the team’s vacancy at quarterbacks coach. Bush Hamdan left that post to become the offensive coordinator at the University of Washington.

Bevell was fired as the Seahawks offensive coordinator this month after seven years in the job. He had the same role with the Vikings for five years and last served as a quarterbacks coach with the Packers in 2005.

Former Panthers quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey is also reportedly set for an interview. Greg Knapp and Jedd Fisch have also spoken to the Falcons about the job.

  1. He should hold out until the Vikings season finishes. Potential is there for him to return as the OC, and working alongside Zimmer can’t be a bad thing.

  2. I think Bevell is too soft to be a coach in this league. He’s not creative enough to be a coordinator. He had some good moments in Seattle but I think that was mainly do because the Hawks had a very talented roster. Once the talent started getting “older” or diminishing so did our production. Meaning it wasn’t the plays that were working.

  3. I see this one coming like a train. If Sarkasian has trouble as OC next season they can fire him and promote Bevell. In fact, I believe the Falcons should do just that right now. Geaux Saints!

  4. Weird thing about the 12th is that they blame Bevell for the interception in the SB Bevell called a pass play. He did not draw up a play that resulted in an interception. Wilson would have gotten credit and probably the SB MVP if the pass resulted in a TD> When Russell Wilson was a leading candidate for MVP, they did not give Bevell any credit, but when Russell Wilson flopped in December, they put the blame on Bevell.

    What team chooses a special teams player, 6 on the WR depth chart for a WIN at the 1 yard line. You make zero sense, and your comment is filled with bias against Wilson, who did not CALL THE ERRANT PLAY.
