Seahawks fired OC Brian Schottenheimer. His offense set a number of Seahawks’ records. But after meeting last night, it was evident there were philosophical differences between Schottenheimer and HC Pete Carroll. They decided a parting was in the best interests of both sides.
Brian Schottenheimer is a fantastic person and coach and we thank him for the last three years. Citing philosophical differences, we have parted ways.
#Seahawks have parted ways with OC Brian Schottenheimer.

I was just recording a podcast with an old friend of mine with a particular interest in the Seahawks as the Brian Schottenheimer news broke and you’ll get to hear that pretty soon.
Russell Wilson: 94.0 PFF Grade since Brian Schottenheimer became Seahawks OC in 2018
2nd among QBs behind Patrick Mahomes (94.9)
Imagine telling a Seahawks fan -- after week 5 -- that Brian Schottenheimer would be the coordinator to leave in the offseason.
Citing "philosophical differences"--meaning, he wanted to throw the ball deep all the time and Pete Carroll wanted to get back to more running--#Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator and play caller Brian Schottenheimer. More soon @thenewstribune
Brian Schottenheimer wanted to let Russell Wilson cook the 1st half of season
Seattle had the best offensive year
Then Pete wanted the run game back
Offense then stalled 2nd half of season
OC then gets fired
Now Pete goes back go the run, that didn't work
Oh @Seahawks https://t.co/6wywy8yxl0
Chuck Pagano & Brian Schottenheimer are two really good coaches and two really good people. Good luck to them wherever life takes them.
Some negative themes of Brian Schottenheimer's Seahawks offenses:
Lulls towards the second half of the season
Disjointed periods within those games
Playoff exits where the run-pass balanced felt skewed
How much of this falls also on the QB? Hard to say. '20 offense capitulated
In light of Brian Schottenheimer firing, here is a 20-year look of #Seahawks (red line) vs #NFL average (gray line) for pass frequency on early downs, early in games (first 28 minutes).
TIRED: Brian Schottenheimer
WIRED: John Schneider
Brian schottenheimer should be worth a look. Record breaking offense and Seattle and former Jets offensive coordinator. Already knows the area and what it takes to win as he was the OC for the two AFC championship appearances.
