Report: Rams hire Brian Schottenheimer

Coming off a rocky season with the New York Jets, Brian Schottenheimer has been hired as offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams, according to a report.

Citing league sources, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday that Schottenheimer was picked over fired Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson, who had impressed new Rams head coach Jeff Fisher in an interview earlier this week.

Schottenheimer parted ways with New York last week following a season in which the offense ranked 25th in the NFL and failed to break the 20-point mark in each of the last three games.

Earlier in the season, the Jets denied a story that three wide receivers went to head coach Rex Ryan to question the job being done by Schottenheimer.

Fisher seems to have his top assistants in place after it was reported earlier in the week that the Rams would hire New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams for the same position.
