Brian Schottenheimer might not grab the Jets’ head coaching job, but will he remain as the team’s offensive coordinator?

ESPN’s Chris Mortenson is reporting that newly hired Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has Schottenheimer and Broncos quarterbacks coach Jim Bates at the top of his list of potential offensive coordinators.

Schottenheimer has one year remaining on his contact with the Jets, but Mortenson reports that Schottenheimer “might ask out of his contract” if he is not hired as the team’s head coach.
