By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. The team described the departure as “philosophical differences.”

He had been in the role for the past three seasons. It is not clear at this time what those differences may have been.

“Brian Schottenheimer is a fantastic person and coach, and we thank him for the last three years,” the Seahawks said in a statement on Twitter. “Citing philosophical differences, we have parted ways.”

The Seahawks will begin a search to find Schottenheimer’s replacement. Before coming to the Seahawks, he was the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks coach for two seasons.

He has been coaching since 1997. Nearly all of his coaching career has been in the NFL.

Only three seasons he spent with teams in college football.

Schottenheimer was the Syracuse Orange wide receivers coach in 1999. Then, the very next season, he was the USC Trojans tight ends coach.

In 2015, he served as the Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

With his history in the NFL, Schottenheimer may attempt to find another job in the NFL. He could be considered for the several offensive coordinator positions with the openings around the league.

“Schotty… I’m grateful for how much you meant to me over the past three years,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said in a tweet. “God blessed me with you, we won a lot of games, threw a lot of touchdowns and had a blast in meetings and our bible studies. The best days are ahead for you. Go be Great. God first.”
