The Seahawks coach offered the job left vacant Wednesday when Darell Bevell was sacked to Colts quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer.

Schottenheimer was reportedly interviewed by the Seahawks earlier in the week for the position and they are expected to name him the new offensive coordinator, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Georgia offense plummeted in its one year under Schottenheimer. He was previously an offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams from 2012 to 2014 and the New York Jets from 2006 to 2011.

Schottenheimer has spent the last two seasons as the quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis.

Seattle's general manager John Schneider worked in the Redskins' front office when the team's head coach was Marty Schottenheimer.

He entered coaching the next year as an assistant for the Dick Vermeil-coach St. Louis Rams and has been an assistant in the National Football League or college ranks ever since. Brian also served on his father's coaching staffs with the Chargers and Chiefs. The offense fell from 8th in scoring offense in Mike Bobo's final year to 85th under Schottenheimer.

Kirby Smart replaced Schottenheimer with Jim Chaney. Schottenehimer will get to coach Russell Wilson, who is undoubtedly the best quarterback he's ever had.
