According to ESPN, the team has made the decision to hire former Indianapolis Colts quarterback coach Brian Schottenheimer as the next offensive coordinator. He served that role for the Jets from 2006 to 2011 and for the Rams from 2012 to 2014. The team fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable this week.
Schottenheimer's offenses have struggled in the past, but he spent most of his tenure at NY with Mark Sanchez as his quarterback. The Seahawks offense struggled all season, especially late, with no semblance of a run game all season.More news: Inc. Acquires 300 Shares of Delta Air Lines, Inc. (DAL)
However, the Seahawks had some notable problems running the ball ranking 23rd overall that saw Wilson lead the team in rushing with 586 yards while no running back on the roster had more than 250 yards. He departed in January 2012, much to the approval of New York's faithful after the Jets finished 29th in total offense while Mark Sanchez regressed in his third season. Wilson also scored three of the team's four rushing touchdowns.

Jets fans know Schottenheimer well from his days as the team's offensive coordinator, though he wasn't exactly a hit in East Rutherford. Jeremy Bates was sacked after one season in that role, leading to Bevell's hiring in 2011.
