The Detroit Lions have hired Darrell Bevell as the new offensive coordinator, the team announced Wednesday.
Bevell most recently spent seven seasons, from 2011-17, with the Seattle Seahawks as the offensive coordinator. During his time in Seattle, Bevell helped the Seahawks appear in the playoffs in five of his seven seasons.
Bevell's offenses have been more run-oriented during his 12-year career as a play-caller. His offenses have had an average ranking of 9.3 in rush attempts and a ranking of 23.5 in pass attempts, though in his last two seasons with the Seahawks, he was a bit more pass-friendly.
