St.Louis Hires Former Jets OC Brian Schottenheimer to Run Offense

The Rams have a new offensive coordinator, as today new coach Jeff Fisher officially hired former New York Jets OC Brian Schottenheimer to run the teams offense.

Schottenheimer was dumped by the Jets at the end of the season, as he and the Jets failed to make the postseason after they dropped their last couple games.

The son of Marty was expected to be a hot head coaching prospect, but now will have to settle for the Rams job after things didn’t work out for he and the Jets.

Scottenheimer has worked with a number of QB’s, including Tony Banks, Jeff George, Drew Brees, Doug Flutie, Philip Rivers, Chad Pennington, Kellen Clemens, Brett Favre and Mark Sanchez.

Last season the Jets offense ranked 25th in the NFL and failed to break the 20-point mark in each of the last three games.

He will have his work cut out for him in his first season with the Rams under Fisher.
