RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates after just one season during which Seattle’s offense ranked near the bottom of the NFL.

The team confirmed the firing late Tuesday morning. Bates’ dismissal was first reported by NFL Network.

Seattle finished the regular season with the 28th ranked offense in the league. Seattle especially struggled running the ball, where they averaged just 89 yards per game in the regular season, almost the worst in franchise history.

Bates came with head coach Pete Carroll from Southern California.

Before serving as the Trojans offensive coordinator in Carroll’s final season at USC, Bates was with Denver from 2006-08.

Bates was Jay Cutler’s quarterback coach in 2008 when Cutler was a Pro Bowl selection.
