After the Jets season collapsed, the team repeatedly tried to sell the notion that offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer would remain with the club.
Schottenheimer knew better. He told reporters Tuesday that he didn’t even expect to be back with the team before the Jets lost three straight games to end the season.
“I was excited about the possibility of a change and I quite honestly couldn’t be more pleased of how it ended up,” Schottenheimer said via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.
Now the offensive coordinator in St. Louis, Schottenheimer is looking forward to working with Sam Bradford. He also said it “will be fun” to face the Jets in 2012.
“We had a lot of success,” Schottenheimer said. “I wish we could have . . . made it to the Super Bowl.”
