Marty Schottenheimer isn’t looking for a job in the NFL. His son, Brian, isn’t looking for one, either.
Marty’s brother, Kurt, is.
According to Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Kurt Schottenheimer met with 49ers coach Mike Singletary regarding the vacant special teams coordinator position.
The 49ers are looking for a replacement for Al Everest, whose contract was not renewed.
Schottenheimer has worked as defensive coordinator for several teams, including the Chiefs, Lions, and Redskins.
But it was Marty’s desire to hire Kurt for the position of defensive coordinator in San Diego that helped provoke Marty’s termination in February 2007, after a 14-2 regular season and a one-and-done adventure in the postseason.
Apparently, nepotism is frowned upon within the Chargers organization. (It’s unknown which of the four members of the Spanos family adopted that specific policy.)
