Sources: No Brian Schottenheimer offer
Jeff Fisher, who has yet to sign a contract to be the coach of the Rams, met with former New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer in Nashville on Sunday regarding the same position with St. Louis, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
According to the sources, the meeting went well and the two sides talked until roughly 10:45 p.m. ET. No offer has been extended yet, but the sources said Fisher and Schottenheimer are scheduled to talk again Monday.
Schottenheimer interviewed on Friday with Alabama coach Nick Saban regarding the Crimson Tide's offensive coordinator position.
Schottenheimer and the Jets parted ways following a disappointing 8-8 season in 2011. On Friday, coach Rex Ryan, commenting for the first time, called it a "mutual decision."
The Jets hired former Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano as their new playcaller.
In six seasons as the Jets' coordinator, the last three under Ryan, Schottenheimer was a lightning rod for criticism. His ouster was applauded by an angry fan base, which saw the Jets plummet to 29th in total offense and watched as Mark Sanchez regressed in his third season.
