Source: Seahawks tab Schottenheimer as OC


The Seattle Seahawks are expected to hire Brian Schottenheimer as their next offensive coordinator, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Schottenheimer, 44, has spent the past two seasons as the Indianapolis Colts‘ quarterbacks coach and has twice been an offensive coordinator in the NFL. He served that role for the Jets from 2006 to 2011 and for the Rams from 2012 to 2014. Schottenheimer was the offensive coordinator at Georgia in 2015.

The hiring of Schottenheimer continues the reshuffling of Seattle’s offensive coaching staff. The team fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable this week. Each had been with the team in those roles since 2011.

Schottenheimer is the son of longtime NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer. Seahawks general manager John Schneider worked in the front offices of the Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins while the elder Schottenheimer was coaching those teams.
