Ian Rapoport confirmed that the Seahawks offered the offensive coordinator job to Brian Schottenheimer and that they are working on finalizing a deal.
Adam Schefter reports that the Seahawks are expected to hire former Colts QBs coach Brian Schottenheimer as their next offensive coordinator.
Earlier today, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times wrote that the word around Seahawks was that they liked how Schottenheimer found ways to utilize Colts QB Jacoby Brissett‘s mobility last season, so they are clearly impressed enough to sign him to a contract.
The Seahawks reportedly had Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo as one of their top targets and were hoping to speak to him if Philadelphia loses to the Falcons. However, it appears that they are planning to move forward with Schottenheimer. (NFLTR)
Schottenheimer, 44, began his NFL coaching career with the Rams in 1997 as an assistant. Since then, he’s worked for the Redskins, Chargers, Jets and Rams before joining the Colts in 2016.
Schottenheimer has nine years of coordinator experience with the Jets and Rams.
