Breaking: it’s not John Lilly.

Or anyone else who’s supposed to have interviewed.

Richt plays his cards pretty close to the vest.  I’ll do some digging on Schottenheimer and post further.

  18. He was Jets OC for 6 seasons (2006-2011) under both Mangini and Rex Ryan. The Jets offense declined significantly the year after he left. Shottenheimer did a good job with the Jets. He was been unfortunate in that he had the following starting QB’s in NY: Chad Pennington, Kelly Clemens, Brett Favre, and Mark Sanchez (and even worse QBs in St. Louis). The Jets offense was ranked 13th in scoring each of his final two seasons despite having Sanchez starting as a rookie. The year the Jets had 39 year old Favre, the Jets finished 9th in offense. Looks like a great hire.

  32. found this from an article on espn:

    Philosophy: The offense St. Louis will run has roots in the Don Coryell digit system, though Schottenheimer said his offense would be more concept-based than reliant upon actual numbers. Schottenheimer learned the game from his famous father, Marty, but he initially thought he would fall under the West Coast tree. He pointed to Mike McCarthy, Jimmy Raye and Steve Spurrier as coaches he had borrowed from over the years. He learned the Coryell-based offense from Jerry Rhome in St. Louis during the 1997 season, when Dick Vermeil was coach. Schottenheimer said he likes the way “the formations flow” and the flexibility afforded coaches on game days.

      • Its pretty complicated offense, especially the terminology. I’m worried college kids won’t master it enough is such a short time to be efficient. LSU finished dead last in passing this year in the SEC. Thus system is tough and demanding on the QB, but it does prepare them for the NFL.

        Like

        • Paint

          The terminology with a Coryell system is actually more simplified in regards to communicating which routes/route tree are called and assigned to X Y and Z recievers. West coast offenses are heavy in terminology, much longer learning curve regarding terminology. That, generally, is not the case with a Coryell system. It’s is built on vertical passing primarily and the use of packaged plays and concepts, the qb has to know his reads and make his adjustments in the heat of the moment and pre-snap reads are essential.
          The running game, well… Bloomgren was his o-line run game coordinator with the Jets. That hire isn’t happening here, but it serves as an example of Schott utilizing a power run game. Best of both worlds IMO.

    Schottenheimer tutored Brees and Rivers in San Diego. I imagine that was very appealing to Richt since he wanted to kill two birds (OC and QB coach) with one stone with this hire.

    I kind of have mixed feelings, but I don’t think the offensive coordinator is as pivotal to the program’s success as the defensive coordinator. It’s still Richt’s offense. We just have to hope Schottenheimer demonstrates a knack for dialing up the right play at the right time.

    Like

      While it’s not the Knack, Brees does remember las colinas being alive with the sound of music:

      “Schottenheimer even showcased his songwriting chops in 2005, when the Chargers started 0-2 while struggling to get footballs to their playmakers. He adapted Michael Jackson’s song “Pretty Young Thing,” or “P.Y.T.,” made it “P2P,” or “Push to Playmakers” like Antonio Gates, LaDainian Tomlinson, Eric Parker and Keenan McCardell.

      Here are the lyrics that Brees remembers:

      I’m going throw it to you (P2P)
      Gatesy
      I’m going to flip it to you (P2P)
      L. T.
      I’m going to find you (P2P)
      E. P.
      We didn’t forget about you (P2P)
      Keenan
      We will win.

      Every Friday, Schottenheimer required each quarterback to sing those lyrics and add his own line at the end. As the Chargers started winning, as their season turned, it become their good-luck charm.

      “Those times we spent in that quarterback meeting room were pretty special,” Schottenheimer said.

You take a guy with no history with the program, long removed from college, and ask him to change what he’s been doing for 14 years – take on new recruiting responsibilities, develop (not refine) rudimentary offensive skills, and simplify scheme. It feels to me like the Grantham hire but on the other side of the ball.

      I’m sure there are some great examples of long-time nfl coordinators dropping down to college and succeeding, but I am just having a hard time identifying them. I’m sure there are others on here who can enlighten me, which I would honestly welcome.

    For those interested, The St. Louis Rams’ current OL coach is former Atlanta Falcons coach Paul Boudreau. Given the long time he’s been in the NFL, I am not sure he will be the guy.

  50. I think I like it, mostly because it continues what has been the Offensive philosophy at UGa since CMR arrived in 2001. These kinds of hires with the schemes that come with them lay out a fairly believable path for recruits aiming for the League. Though it is also this affinity with the NFL that is not exactly rustling the jimmies.

    There is still Sp.Teams to fret about, so all our worries aren’t over.

    Will Schottenheimer learn Richt’s playbook and terminology or bring his own. My thinking is it will be a lot harder for all the players to learn a new system than one coach.

    Night games will become “A Shott in the dark”.

    We might as well get the puns out of the way.

    The Offense played lights-out, like they were Shott in the heimer.

    A Shott and a beer ought to get us there.

    The Shott heard around the Dawg Nation.

    This should be a Shott in the QB arm.

    I.m sure Schottenheimer was the best out there and Coach Richt has his man.

    Ok, yall. Worry period is over and we have a great coach by Richt’s standards. Onward to signing day.

    I, for one, am going to continue to blame Bobo. Too many syllables with this new guy.

    It’s very likely a great hire. There are probably very personal reasons he BS
    wanted to come to UGA..Time to hunker down and get ready for 15.

    At least this hire can have immediate impact coaching our 3 young QBs. Adjusting to our offense is going to be simple for him. If he helps keep Eason on-board for 2016, that’s a bonus. And if he has clock management abilities, this will be a home run hire.

  59. From what I am reading, this sounds like a spectacular hire.

    Of course that doesn’t automatically mean it will turn out brilliantly, but that’s life.

    I am very excited about this!

    have watched the Rams for the last three years due to a family connection.. If you love dink and dunk, Shotty’s your man…dig a little deeper and check out his offenses’s yard per catch…always bottom of the league, even when Bradford was healthy….ya’ll will be calling for his head in 10 months time…but I do hope it will work out and I’m proven very wrong,,,GO DAWGS

    I love Dawg fans. Ready, shoot, aim. CBS hire is now scary because our last NFL savior couldn’t keep it simple. We run a Pro offense so CMR hires a pro OC. But but he can’t recruit. Eason’s dad is already approved so rest easy we remain an NFL feeder school. I’m more worried about the Oline coach.
