Brian Schottenheimer has been offered the offensive coordinator position with the St. Louis Rams under Jeff Fisher, and is expected to accept, according to a report from NFL.com. According to a league source, the only thing standing in the way of an official announcement are the details of the contract.
Schottenheimer left the New York Jets organization last Tuesday after six years in charge of the Jets' offense. Fired Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano was announced as the Jets newest offensive coordinator almost instantaneously following Schottenheimer's departure.
Few would argue that Schottenheimer was a rousing success in New York. This season, the Jets finished 25th in the league in total offense and quarterback Mark Sanchez took some anonymous heat from teammates recently for his poor play this season.
