Among the other reported candidates are Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason.

Schottenheimer, 40, has only two years of experience in the college ranks at Syracuse in 1999 and Southern California in 2000. He also was an assistant on his father Marty Schottenheimer's staff with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Washington Redskins before moving on to the San Diego Chargers as quarterbacks coach and then the New York Jets and the Rams.

Hamilton was the offensive coordinator at Stanford during quarterback Andrew Luck's senior year and then rejoined Luck with the Indianapolis Colts as offensive coordinator last season.

Mason took over as Stanford's defensive coordinator in 2011 and the Cardinal has ranked among the top units in FBS the past two years. He was a 2013 finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes annually to the top assistant coach in the country.
