Michael Lombardi says that Brian Schottenheimer is set to join the Rams as their new offensive coordinator.
Brian Schottenheimer has been offered the St. Louis Rams’ offensive coordinator job and will accept the position on new coach Jeff Fisher’s staff, a league source said Sunday night.
All that’s left to make it official is for the contract to be completed, according to the source.
Fisher and Schottenheimer, the New York Jets’ former offensive coordinator, spent Sunday night at dinner discussing the position.
NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported that Schottenheimer’s interview with the Rams began Sunday morning, two days after he talked with the University of Alabama about its offensive coordinator vacancy.
Schottenheimer told the Jets on Tuesday that he wouldn’t return next season after six years of running an offense that often failed to live up to expectations. The Jets quickly hired former Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano to replace Schottenheimer.
The Rams agreed to terms with Fisher to be their coach Friday, and the team later confirmed it is finalizing the details of the contract.
Good luck with the Rams Brian. Sam Bradford’s development will become a key barometer in trying to forecast what the future holds for Mark Sanchez. The debate will wage on for years, was it Brian’s fault or is Mark Sanchez not up to to task?
