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.
