ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported Seattle's plan to offer Schottenheimer the job Saturday. Statistically, Schottenheimer 's offenses have been underwhelming, though he hasn't worked with a quarterback with the talent of Seattle's Russell Wilson in his nine seasons as an OC .

The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly found their replacement for former offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Brian Schottenheimer, who spent the past two seasons as quarterbacks coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has been offered the offensive coordinator's job with Seattle, multiple media outlets reported Saturday.

ESPN, citing a league source, reported that Schottenheimer was expected to be hired by Seattle, while the NFL Network reported that the Seahawks offered him the job "before other teams got involved."

The son of former NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer, the younger Schottenheimer was the offensive coordinator with the New York Jets from 2006-11.

New York advanced to the AFC championship game twice during Schottenheimer's tenure. He also served as offensive coordinator with the St. Louis Rams from 2012-14 with decidedly less success before taking a similar position at the University of Georgia in 2015.

Bevell was fired by Seattle on Wednesday after spending the past seven seasons as the team's offensive coordinator.

Earl Thomas doubles down on holdout talk .
Earl Thomas‘ second Seahawks contract raised the bar for safeties, but that four-year, $40M extension has been since surpassed by several players. And it’s only good through the 2018 season. This status has caused the perennial All-Pro to reassess his standing in Seattle. After broaching a holdout earlier this week, Thomas doubled down on Saturday, telling Jane Slater of NFL.com he doesn’t see himself rejoining his Seahawks teammates without a long-term deal (Twitter link).“I won’t allow myself to even go out there and just risk it all if they’re not having faith in me in a long-term deal,” Thomas said at the Pro Bowl.
