Seahawks | Coach explains Jeremy Bates firing

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team fired offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates because of a philosophical issue between the team and Bates, reports Danny O'Neil, of The Seattle Times. "Just really is a philosophical issue," Carroll said. "We needed to move in a different direction. So we took that into account. He did a tremendous job for us in so many ways, and I've been together with him for a couple years. He's a tremendous football coach, but we just had to move on."
