The Seahawks scored a season-high 40 points against the New York Jets on December 13th. However, in their final four games, the team could not score more than 26 points.

Schottenheimer will work with Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darren Bevell. Also, Meyer has another veteran coordinator to work with during his initial coaching staff.

Since the 2011 season, Schottenheimer has been employed by five teams. He also worked one season in college football during this time.

This is the first time that Schottenheimer has held the title of passing game coordinator. He’s been either a quarterbacks coach or offensive coordinator in the NFL since 2002.

The new Jaguars coaching staff will be working with Trevor Lawrence, who is projected to be the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Meyer is putting together a veteran staff to work with Lawrence.
