Media members, fans stunned that Seattle is reportedly hiring Brian Schottenheimer as the offensive coordinator


Brian Schotteneheimer-Seattle Seahawks-offensive coordinator

Georgia fans and media members do not have fond memories of Brian Schottenheimer and his one season at Georgia. So you can imagine their reaction to the news that the Seattle Seahawks had hired him.

Schottenheimer is reportedly going to be the next offensive coordinator for the Seahawks, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN. Schottenheimer had spent the past two seasons as the quarterbacks coach for the Indianapolis Colts after he was dismissed from Georgia following the 2015 season.

When many Georgia medai types and fans heard the news, they were fairly surprised that an NFL team gave Schottenheimer another chance at running an offense.

The Georgia offense plummeted in its one year under Schottenheimer. The offense fell from 8th in scoring offense in Mike Bobo’s final year to 85th under Schottenheimer. Georgia also went from 30th in total offense to 83rd under Schotteneheimer.

It’s also worth noting that Schottenheimer has never had a top 10 offense in the NFL, as his offenses have struggled in his stops with the New York Jets and the then St. Louis Rams. Schottenehimer will get to coach Russell Wilson, who is undoubtedly the best quarterback he’s ever had.

Kirby Smart replaced Schottenheimer with Jim Chaney. After a rocky first season, the Georgia offense became one of the best in the country, particularly on the ground. The Bulldogs finished ninth in the country in rushing offense this year. Georgia finished the season with a 13-2 record, losing to Alabama in the national championship game.
