Indianapolis Colts QB coach Brian Schottenheimer is reportedly expected to interview for the Seattle Seahawks vacant offensive coordinator position following the firing of Derell Bevell in recent days.

Schottenheimer was one of few coordinators or position coaches in which some fans were hoping to maintain some role with the new coaching staff. Over the past few days the Colts have seen Joe Philbin (not one of them), Tom McMahon and Jim Hostler all accepted positions with other teams.

Schottenheimer has OC experience in his past and could have been an option in Indianapolis in that role as well, especially if that coach was to be the primary play-caller. He spent 6 seasons as the OC with the New York Jets from 2006-11, and another 3 seasons in St. Louis with the Rams from 2012-14 in that same position.

Now with Schottenheimer likely moving on — whether or not it is with the Seahawks — the waiting game continues to see who the Colts bring in at head coach, and who he fills his staff with. The new coach typically brings in his own crew to begin with, but some good options are already off of the table. He’ll have his hands full right from the jump.
