After just one season in the collegiate ranks, Brian Schottenheimer has found himself back in the NFL. This time, he is back in the AFC after spending six years with the New York Jets as offensive coordinator from 2006-2011.
The Indianapolis Colts announced they had signed Schottenheimer to be their new quarterbacks coach on Monday. This comes just days after Clyde Christensen was hired as the offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins.
