The Jaguars have requested permission to interview Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, according to a report

The Jacksonville Jaguars have requested permission to interview St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN. Schottenheimer was hired as the Rams offensive coordinator this past offseason, after serving on the New York Jets in the same position for six seasons.

Schottenheimer, 39, is the son of former NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer and has worked for multiple NFL teams in some capacity.

Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation's Rams blog Turf Show Times gave his opinion on Schottenheimer as a head coach:

There is nothing at this point to suggest that he is finished in St. Louis. Greg Roman figures to be a very hot commodity on the coaching market. However, this isn't Schottenheimer's first rodeo with the Jaguars, which makes you wonder if owner Shad Khan, who is very involved with the team, sees something he likes in the offensive coordinator.

Schottenheimer's work with quarterbacks could have the Jaguars interested too. He made Mark Sanchez look reasonable competent and helped Sam Bradford approach something closer to his expected level of performance after a lost second season in 2011.
