Rams Hire Brian Schottenheimer As Offensive Coordinator

Jim Thomas of the St Louis Dispatch reports that the Rams have made the hiring of former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer official.


SI.com’s Peter King reports that St Louis Rams are expected to hire Brian Schottenheimer to be the teams next offensive coordinator.

Schottenheimer’s name came up a few weeks ago before Jeff Fisher was hired to be the Rams next head coach but the team still elected to bring in former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson for an interview which only complicated matters further.

Kings adds that the Rams actually preferred Schottenheimer over Jackson which is a little surprising but then again I wasn’t exactly in the interview.

Schottenheimer’s offense has been critizied for being overly complex or at least for Mark Sanchez and ranked in the bottom half the league in total yards last season. Sam Bradford gets to learn his third offensive system in as many years so we’ll have to see if Schottenheimer can work some miracles that Josh McDaniels wasn’t able to.

I wish they’d pick an OC and stick with him for a few years. Bradford has elite ability but hasn’t been able to harness it due to the ‘revolving door’ of systems he’s had to learn. It usually takes a young QB 2-3 years to come into his own with the SAME system. It makes me wonder if he’s now been set back another year or two from a real breakout. It’s been a real aggrevating DECADE as a Rams fan……..
