Report: Seahawks fire offensive line coach Tom Cable


On a day in which the Seattle Seahawks let go of offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and defensive coordinator Kris Richard, perhaps the most heavily scrutinized assistant on Seattle’s staff has also been fired.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that Tom Cable, longtime Seahawks offensive line coach and assistant head coach, has been handed his pink slip after seven seasons with the team.

Cable also is the “run game coordinator,” although the 2017 Seahawks rushing attack looked anything but coordinated. Seahawks running backs (read: everyone not named Russell Wilson) collectively ran for just a shade over 1,000 yards and ranked dead-last in yards per carry. While pass protection has long been a problem under Cable, Seattle was at least one of the best running teams in the NFL from 2012-2015. These past two seasons of lackluster rushing offenses, combined with the ongoing struggle to keep Russell Wilson upright, appear to be the final straw for Cable’s tenure.

More updates on Cable’s departure will be posted here shortly, but the breaking news on this second Wednesday of 2018 is that the Tom Cable era is over in Seattle.
