On Monday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that former Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer would be joining the Jacksonville Jaguars’ staff. However, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Schottenheimer will have an additional role with serving as the Jags’ passing game coordinator — and that will be as the team’s quarterbacks coach.

Schottenheimer, 47, brings 19 years of NFL coaching experience to the table and has worked with some notable quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Doug Flutie, Andrew Luck, and most recently Russell Wilson. When looking at that list, it certainly should give Jags fans some comfort about him getting to potentially coach Trevor Lawrence.

Schottenheimer, the son of the legendary Marty Schottenheimer, made stops with the Washington Football Team, San Diego Chargers, New York Jets, St. Louis Rams, Indianapolis Colts, and Seahawks. His time with Washington, San Diego, and Indy were as a quarterbacks coach, while his stops with New York, St. Louis, and Seattle were as an offensive coordinator.

Schottenheimer has received praise from some of the quarterbacks he’s worked with like Brees and Wilson, so it’s easy to see why Urban Meyer targeted him. The first-year NFL head coach emphasized that he wanted an elite staff in his first press conference, and Schottenheimer defines that from the perspective of coaching the quarterback position.

Schottenheimer will join two other former Seahawks assistants on the Jags’ staff in offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and receivers coach Sanjay Lal. Bevell was the Seahawks’ coordinator before Schottenheimer (2011-17), while Lal was on the Seahawks’ 2020 staff with him as a senior offensive assistant.
