The 49ers also have discussed Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but they believe he ultimately will remain with the Jets. New Jets coach Rex Ryan is trying to persuade Schottenheimer to stay with the team. Schottenheimer, however, is disenchanted with the team after it passed him over for the head job.
The ball is clearly in Schottenheimer's court. The Jets want him. Maybe San Francisco wants him. Maybe another opening becomes available or some team like the Lions takes another look. My money is on him finding out the waters aren't so pleasant elsewhere, so he'll stay with New York. But he's clearly feels a little miffed for not getting the head job.
