Brian Schottenheimer has informed the New York Jets that he will not return next season as the teams Offensive Coordinator.
“After much thought and consideration, I have decided not to return to the New York Jets in 2012,” said Schottenheimer in a statement released by the Jets. “I am very proud of what we have accomplished in the six years I have been here.
“I am grateful for the relationships that I have with our players and coaches and appreciate the hard work and dedication that went into our success. My family and I would like to thank Rex Ryan and the entire Jets organization and wish them continued success. I look forward to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.”
Rex Ryan said that he understood Schottenheimer wanted a “fresh start” elsewhere and knows he’ll be a “successful head coach” some day.
