Seahawks to hire Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator

Schottenheimer is reportedly going to be the next offensive coordinator for the Seahawks, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN. Brian is Marty's son.

After missing the playoffs this season for the first time since 2011, the Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Georgia in 2015 and spent the previous three seasons as the Rams offensive coordinator.

The Georgia offense plummeted in its one year under Schottenheimer.

Seattle's general manager John Schneider worked in the Redskins' front office when the team's head coach was Marty Schottenheimer.


Brian Schottenheimer, born October 16, 1973, played quarterback at Florida, where he was the backup to Heisman Trophy victor Danny Wuerffel as a senior in 1996. Brian also served on his father's coaching staffs with the Chargers and Chiefs.

Kirby Smart replaced Schottenheimer with Jim Chaney.

Schottenheimer was sacked by the Jets following the 2011 season - and with a perception that Sanchez had regressed in his third year in the National Football League after the Jets went 8-8 and ranked 25 in the National Football League in yards - and hired by the Rams, where he was the OC under Jeff Fisher for the next three seasons. Schottenehimer will get to coach Russell Wilson, who is undoubtedly the best quarterback he's ever had.
