Cross a candidate off the list, according to Pete Carroll.

Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell is "not available" to BYU, according to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.

Several members of the Seattle media reported Carroll confirming contact with BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe, but that Bevell would not be a candidate to replace Bronco Mendenhall as BYU's head man.

As a relatively successful LDS football coach, Bevell naturally lands on the list of possible BYU candidates. This might be his way of letting BYU down easily by having his head coach say he's "not available."

Bevell has been offensive coordinator for the Seahawks since 2011. Prior to coaching in Seattle, he was the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings from 2006-2010.

In college, Bevell coached receivers at Connecticut for two years after being a graduate assistant at Iowa State in 1997.

As a player, Bevell quarterbacked at Northern Arizona and Wisconsin.
