“One coach the Seahawks will want to talk to for their vacant offensive coordinator job: Colts QB coach Brian Schottenheimer ,” Rapoport tweeted Thursday. Schottenheimer has been with the Colts the last two seasons following a one-year stint as the OC at Georgia.

The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly found their replacement for former offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Brian Schottenheimer, who spent the past two seasons as quarterbacks coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has been offered the offensive coordinator's job with Seattle, multiple media outlets reported Saturday.

ESPN, citing a league source, reported that Schottenheimer was expected to be hired by Seattle, while the NFL Network reported that the Seahawks offered him the job "before other teams got involved."

The son of former NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer, the younger Schottenheimer was the offensive coordinator with the New York Jets from 2006-11.

New York advanced to the AFC championship game twice during Schottenheimer's tenure. He also served as offensive coordinator with the St. Louis Rams from 2012-14 with decidedly less success before taking a similar position at the University of Georgia in 2015.

Bevell was fired by Seattle on Wednesday after spending the past seven seasons as the team's offensive coordinator.
