Darrell Bevell is a candidate for the head coaching vacancy at BYU.

Bevell is currently offensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks.

Bevell attended Wisconsin and has no ties to the BYU program. But he is Mormon and took a two-year mission while in college.

After Sunday’s 38-point outburst, Pete Carroll praised the job performance of Bevell this year.

“I think he’s doing what he’s always done,” Carroll said. “I know at times there’s been this talk about him, but he’s a great play caller and he’s a great play designer. He and [Tom] Cable put together game plans every week. I think everybody is feeling what’s best for us, we’re getting to it, we’re practicing it well and then carrying it to games. Those guys are really responsible for that. They’re doing a great job.”
