Cowboys officially hire Brian Schottenheimer as new offensive coordinator

The Dallas Cowboys have named Brian Schottenheimer their new offensive coordinator for next season. Schottenheimer served as an offensive coaching consultant for the team this season.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy expressed his thoughts on the hire Saturday afternoon.

“I am very happy to have Brian take on this key role with our team,” McCarthy said. “He has been an important part of our staff already and has a great grasp of where we want to go. Brian also has an exceptionally strong foundation, history, and relationships beyond his time here that translate very well into understanding what our approach to operating and executing will be for the future.”

Schottenheimer, 49, is a 23-year NFL coaching veteran serving multiple different roles throughout his career. His first gig as an offensive coordinator was with the New York Jets in 2006, where he spent the next six years in that role. He was then hired by the St. Louis Rams in 2012 and spent the next three seasons as their offensive coordinator. After one year of serving the same role at Georgia, he returned to the NFL as a quarterbacks coach with the Indianapolis Colts before eventually reclaiming his role as offensive coordinator with the Seattle Seahawks.

Schottenheimer replaces Kellen Moore, who recently took the same job with the Los Angeles Chargers.
