Brian Schottenheimer spent three seasons as the coordinator of the St. Louis Rams before leaving to take the same job at the University of Georgia. Three years ago he showed up back in the NFC West as the offensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks, but on Tuesday he was fired by the team after failing to generate enough offense over the last two months.
The final of those gaffes was Saturday’s 30-20 loss to his old team.
Seahawks fired OC Brian Schottenheimer. His offense set a number of Seahawks’ records. But after meeting last night, it was evident there were philosophical differences between Schottenheimer and HC Pete Carroll. They decided a parting was in the best interests of both sides.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 13, 2021
With Schottenheimer out as the Seahawks offensive coordinator and Robert Saleh likely leaving his post for a head coaching position in the coming weeks, the Rams will have to once again do some homework on incoming changes. That might also be true of what changes could come to the Rams in the next month given the eagerness for many fans around the NFL to see Brandon Staley become their next head coach.
We know that LA will be seeing more offenses from Kyle Shanahan and Kliff Kingsbury, but what’s going to be next for Seattle? Will the Rams be more worried about the next name — or is it going to be another retread from a rival?
