The Seattle Seahawks are close to hiring a new offensive coordinator.
Former Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer is expected to accept the Seahawks‘ offensive coordinator job, a source involved with the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has offered Schottenheimer the vacant job and the two sides are working on the deal, which is expected to be finalized soon, according to Rapoport. Schottenheimer was their top choice, and the Seahawks wanted to get him before other teams potentially offered him positions, Rapoport added.
ESPN first reported the development.
Around The NFL will have more on Schottenheimer soon.
