Schottenheimer set for Rams role

A league source has confirmed that Brian Schottenheimer has offered the post of offensive coordinator at the St Louis Rams and is expected to accept the role on Jeff Fisher's staff.

Fisher was recently appointed the head coach of Missouri franchise and has understandably been quick to appoint his own staff as he prepares for next season and his new team's assault on the play-offs.

The 53-year-old  was appointed to the post on Friday after a season out of the game following the end of his tenure as the head coach of Tennessee. He is expected to bring some much needed stability to the team after he previously spent 16 years with the Titans and will be once again looking to build a dynasty. Those following the best Super Bowl betting should bear this in mind.

Schottenheimer recently left the New York Jets after six years in the BIG Apple, saying he was looking for a new challenge within the game. The 38-year-old has been with the Jets since 2006 but had come in for criticism in recent years after his offence went from one of the best in the league to one of the worst.

His former side have already moved to name former Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano as his replacement and it now looks as he's going to make an almost instant return to the NFL.

Despite interest from the University of Alabama , it now looks almost certain that Schottenheimer will be back in the NFL and it will be intriguing to see whether or not he can turn the Rams offence around.
