Why Was Seal Team Six Disbanded?

So for those of you who don't know, the original SEAL Team Six, was set up in 1978 and disbanded in 1989, and were replaced with DEVGRU, it was more than just a name change, they retested and changed the personnel, but the missions they went on and what they did were the same. So why were they disbanded? I've heard about it being classified, but I'm sure if it even was, there would be some detail out now, since SEAL Team Six was disbanded over 20 years ago
And i'm not one hundred percent on my facts, so if you see anything wrong please tell me
i thought they were actually disbanded, and set up the same, not just a name change
