Here’s the latest on the head coaching tour for Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.
Bevell is apparently out in Chicago. ESPN Chicago’s Michael Wright reports that the Bears hired Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman.
According to reports, Bevell still has interest from Arizona and Jacksonville for those two vacant head coaching jobs.

John McGrath of The News Tribune writes that a blowout could have been waiting for Seattle in San Francisco had the Seahawks got past the Falcons. McGrath: “I know, the Seahawks beat these guys silly on Dec. 23. The 49ers, who’d already clinched a playoff spot and were one win from wrapping up the NFC West Division, had little on the line at CenturyLink Field, and played as if nothing (nor anybody) was on the line. And while the Seahawks’ 42-13 victory was sweet, it set up a chance for San Francisco to exact revenge.”
