The Seahawks have made a coaching move following their wild card loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, Brian Schottenheimer, former offensive coordinator, was released today. The Seahawks had an above average offense with the exception of one position group, the offensive line. That line has been giving Russ fits for years, and it was bad in 2020.
The Seahawks have had mild troubles in the running game due to the fact that they cannot manage to force 16 games out of Chris Carson, and the depth behind him is shaky at best. Wilson has had very good seasons in the Seattle offense, but they have never been able to lead the charge in a deep playoff run with Schottenheimer running the offense.
Schottenheimer has been in the NFL since 1997, working with the St Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs in various capacities. Schottenheimer was the quarterbacks coach for the Washington Redskins (2001), San Diego Chargers (2002-2005), and Indianapolis Colts (2016-2017).
He has worked as an offensive coordinator for the New York Jets (2006-2011), St Louis Rams (2012-2014), and of course the Seattle Seahawks (2018-2020).
Schottenheimer was likely fired due to how bad the offense was moving in the final weeks of 2020, and how much Russ had receded towards the end of the season. Hopefully the next offensive coordinator will get this offense moving, and get them another title.
