According to Jim Thomas of Rams Report, the St. Louis Rams have officially hired Brian Schottenheimer as their offensive coordinator, who will operate under new head coach Jeff Fisher's direction. Sources say that it came down to Schottenhemier and former Raiders coach, Hue Jackson, who coach Fisher was equally impressed with.
The Rams also hired former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, to run their defense for the 2012-13 season.
Schottenheimer is the son of longtime NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer and has been the New York Jets offensive coordinator for the past six seasons. He had his ups and downs during his tenure with the Jets – the team went to back-to-back AFC title game – but this past season the Jets ranked 25th in total offense.
