Brian Schottenheimer Is St. Louis Rams' Next Offensive Coordinator, According To Report

Former New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer met with Jeff Fisher on Sunday, and the meeting apparently went well, as the NFL Network's Michael Lombardi is reporting that Schottenheimer is expected to become the offensive coordinator for the Rams.

All that's left to make it official is for the contract to be completed, according to the source.

Schottenheimer's modest record of results with the Jets may prove a source of controversy with this hire, and as Turf Show Times points out, this move does not signal the return to a West Coast offensive style that had been desired by many fans.

Schottenheimer, who spent the last six seasons with the Jets, got his NFL coaching start in St. Louis in 1997.
