Brian Schottenheimer has reportedly accepted the position of offensive coordinator for the University of Georgia, leaving St. Louis after three seasons in the same position according to Field Yates.
- Aaron Wilson reports that Schottenheimer will also be Georgia’s quarterbacks coach.
Schottenheimer’s departure leaves an obvious void in the Rams coaching staff.
The Rams offense was mildly disappointing under Schottenheimer. In 2012, the team finished 23rd in total yards and 25th in total points. The team followed that up in 2013 finishing 30th and 21st respectively, and 28th and 21st in 2014.
The primary issue that plagued St. Louis offensively was the health of QB Sam Bradford. The new offensive coordinator will undoubtedly have to stabilize the position.
Nonetheless, Schottenheimer is considered a bright mind, and it doesn’t seem likely that the team would have sought a replacement on its own.
Before joining the Rams, Schottenheimer spent six years working as the offensive coordinator for the New York Jets.
