Seahawks hired ex-Colts QBs coach Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator.
It was time for the Seahawks to try something new on offense. It was not time for them to hire Schottenheimer, who has overseen one ineffective offense after another at the NFL level. Some of Schottenheimer's struggles can be blamed on the defensive-minded coaches he coordinated for — namely, Rex Ryan and Jeff Fisher — but he's simply provided zero reason to believe he is someone who should be leading an NFL attack. Throwing out an injured and aging Brett Favre, Russell Wilson will be the best quarterback Schottenheimer has worked with. It's not a good development for Wilson, who has been tasked with carrying far too heavy of a load since Marshawn Lynch's decline and departure from Seattle. Jan 16 - 6:18 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seahawks are expected to hire Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator.

We were optimistic about the future of the Seahawks' offense when reports emerged they were willing to embrace a college-style scheme to suit Russell Wilson's strengths. Instead, Seattle has opted for a proven-failed offensive mind in Marty's son. An utmost example of the NFL's rampant nepotism, Brian Schottenheimer flamed out in previous stints coordinating offenses with the Jets, Rams, and University of Georgia. He spent the last two seasons coaching quarterbacks for the Colts. It's good news for the rest of the NFC West.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are interested in Colts QBs coach Brian Schottenheimer for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

Schottenheimer has nine seasons of coordinating experience in the NFL, but just one of those offenses finished inside the top-15 in total yards while none finished inside the top-15 in passing yards. Seattle should aim higher.

Colts hired Brian Schottenheimer as QBs coach.

Although Schottenheimer has a poor reputation in the media, he did oversee career-best play from Sam Bradford in St. Louis and Mark Sanchez with the Jets. He'll work under OC Rob Chudzinski in Indianapolis and directly with Andrew Luck, who is a prime bounce-back candidate following an injury-marred 2015.

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer has left the team to become the University of Georgia offensive coordinator and QBs coach.

Rams fans had grown tired of Schottenheimer's vanilla scheme and passive attack. But he wasn't given much in St. Louis, especially after losing Sam Bradford for 25 games the past two seasons and being forced to work with guys like Austin Davis, Shaun Hill, and Kellen Clemens. Schottenheimer ran the Rams' offense the past three seasons, but they finished 25th, 21st, and 21st in points scored. He got the offense off to strong starts in games, but rarely made in-game adjustments. Coach Jeff Fisher has rarely hired exciting offensive coordinators, so we're not getting our hopes up this time, either. It's not a particularly attractive destination. The Rams don't have a long-term quarterback or No. 1 receiver, play in the NFC West, and may relocate within a year.

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer will interview for the Vanderbilt head-coaching vacancy Wednesday.

Schottenheimer seems to get head-coaching interviews every year, and we're not sure why. His offenses are unimaginative and vanilla on an annual basis. In 2013, he couldn't find a way to use Tavon Austin and didn't feature high-priced TE Jared Cook nearly enough. Schotty likes to run a ground-and-pound offense. He did that with former Vanderbilt star Zac Stacy this past season and relied on Shonn Greene in the past. Schottenheimer has been the Rams' OC the past two seasons. Colts OC Pep Hamilton is also in the mix at Vandy.
