Seahawks hire Schottenheimer as OC

14 January 2018

The Seahawks coach offered the job left vacant Wednesday when Darell Bevell was sacked to Colts quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer.

The Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell this week.

ESPN first reported the news and said a deal is "expected to get done". The Seahawks could wait to make the hire official until contracts are signed. After a rocky first season, the Georgia offense became one of the best in the country, particularly on the ground.

But it appears the Seahawks have settled on Schottenheimer.

The Georgia offense plummeted in its one year under Schottenheimer.

The son of former National Football League coach Marty Schottenheimer, the younger Schottenheimer was the offensive coordinator with the New York Jets from 2006-11.

The 44-year-old Schottenheimer spent the last two seasons as quarterbacks coach for the Indianapolis Colts.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider was Washington's vice president of player personnel in 2001, when Schottenheimer was on the coaching staff of his father, Marty.

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.

NY advanced to the AFC championship game twice during Schottenheimer's tenure. Louis Rams from 2006 to 2014.
