According to multiple sources, The University of Georgia has hired former Rams Offensive Coordinator Brian Schottenheimer as Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach.

Schottenheimer served as offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams the last three seasons after he held the same coaching position with the New York Jets from 2006-2011. He has also held coaching positions as QB coach with the San Diego Chargers (02-05) and the Washington Redskins (2001).

Mark Richt says, “I’m excited to have Brian join our coaching staff. His NFL experience will be a perfect fit for how we like to play offensive football here at Georgia. He¹ll be excellent in developing our players in both the running and passing games which will benefit them while they are at Georgia and for their future.”

Schottenheimer says, “This is a great opportunity to become a Georgia Bulldog for both my career and my family. I’m thrilled to be part of an elite program with such national tradition and a great staff already in place. I look forward to working with young men and being a positive and significant influence on their lives as we develop them athletically, academically and socially.”
