Brian Schottenheimer Biography – Brian Schottenheimer Wiki
Brian Schottenheimer is an American football coach and offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. He’s been an offensive coordinator in both Jacksonville, Seattle and the Rams, as well as quarterbacks coach for the Colts and Jets.
His OC career started with the Jets from 2006 to 2011, helping the team to a 52-45 record. He developed under head coaches Eric Mangini and Rex Ryan, and worked with quarterbacks Chad Pennington, Brett Favre, Mark Sanchez, and Kellen Clemens.
Schottenheimer made three playoff runs with the Jets in six years, including the 2009 and 2010 AFC Championship games. Former Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano replaced Schottenheimer in 2011 after the Jets finished with an 8-8 record and suffered poor season performance from Sanchez.
Following the Jets, he ran the Rams’ offense from 2012-14 in St. Louis before moving to Georgia as an offensive coordinator in 2015. After a year, Schottenheimer presumed the role of the Colts quarterback coach in 2016 and 2017, and later joined the Seahawks in 2018 for three years as offensive coordinator. Schottenheimer spent 2021 as the Jaguars’ passing game coordinator under Urban Meyer. Schottenheimer was hired by the Cowboys as an offensive consultant in 2022.
On Feb 04, 2023, the Cowboys announced Brian Schottenheimer would be the new offensive coordinator, replacing the recently-departed Kellen Moore, who now has the same role with the Chargers.
“I am thrilled and thankful for this exciting opportunity and embrace the high standards and expectations that come with this role and the Dallas Cowboys organization,” Schottenheimer said in a statement.
“Having long-standing, great respect and appreciation for Mike McCarthy as a person, a leader and a head coach makes this a very rewarding and compelling moment for me. The ability to win with great teammates that share the same goals, and alignment with how to reach them, makes this special for me and I am very grateful for it.”
“I am very happy to have Brian take on this key role with our team,” head coach Mike McCarthy said. “He has been an important part of our staff already and has a great grasp of where we are and where we want to go.”
“Brian has an exceptionally strong foundation, history and relationships beyond his time here that translate very well into understanding what our approach to operating and executing will be for the future. This will be an exciting and efficient transition for us that I am confident will help yield the growth and results we all want and expect.”
McCarthy has obvious ties to the Schottenheimer family. In 1993, he got his first NFL coaching job with the Chiefs, hired by Marty Schottenheimer to be a quality-control coach at the age of 29. He was on Schottenheimer’s staff for six seasons, getting promoted eventually to QB coach.
In 1998, McCarthy’s last season in Kansas City, he was on the same staff as Brian Schottenheimer, who was added as an offensive assistant.

Brian Schottenheimer Wife
Brian Schottenheimer is married to his wife Gemmi Schottenheimer. They have two children.
His wife is very critical of his playcalling.
“She’s very critical,” Schottenheimer said in a previous interview. “I’ll be honest with you. I get in the car and I’m like, ‘Can I just relax for a few minutes?’ She’s like: ‘You ran it up the middle, I don’t like that.’ I’m like, ‘Join the club.'”
In Week 3 against the Saints, the Seattle offense seemed to come alive in the fourth quarter, with quarterback Russell Wilson slinging the ball all over the field in an up-tempo, aggressive approach.
Mrs Schottenheimer wondered why the Seahawks don’t approach games with that tempo right from the get-go.
“My wife loves to ask that question,” Schottenheimer said. “Why don’t you guys just do what you did then? What I try to explain to her is what is a big benefit of that is the fact that it’s late in the halves, or it’s late in the fourth quarter. Or it’s late in the second half. It’s hard to go out when a defense is fresh and try to spread them out and just try to throw it all over the yard, because they’re fresh. They’re attacking and things like that. What helps is obviously, we kind of wear them down. Of course, Russ [Russell Wilson] is so magical in a lot of ways of getting out of trouble.”
“We kind of have fun with it,” Schottenheimer continued. “She’s passionate about football, and that’s why I love her.”

Brian Schottenheimer Salary
In March 2015, Brian Schottenheimer and the University of Georgia signed a three-year contract worth $2.9 million. Schottenheimer’s annual salary was $957,200. That included a base salary of $375,000, with the remaining $582,200 to be paid out monthly in the form of “supplemental compensation”. Schottenheimer was to receive the supplemental income in monthly payments of $48,516.67.
Schottenheimer’s buyout clause called for him to pay UGA $125,000 if he left before Jan. 1, 2016, $100,00 before Jan. 1, 2017 and $50,000 before Dec. 31, 2017. UGA would owe him full compensation for the remainder of the contract if it initiates a termination, according to a copy of the contract obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Schottenheimer’s three-year deal with UGA made him the second-highest paid offensive coordinator in the SEC. LSU’s Cam Cameron made $1.3 million annually.
He left Georgia in December 2015. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, it’s unclear whether Schottenheimer resigned or reached a settlement with UGa. His contract entitled him to the remainder of his salary – about $1.9 million combined over the next two years – and a bowl bonus.
