Jaguars request permission to talk to Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer

The Jacksonville Jaguars have requested permission to interview St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer for their head coach job, according to a league source via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.

Schefter earlier revealed Schottenheimer and San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman to be candidates for the Jaguars head coach opening, now that the team has hired David Caldwell as general manager.

Schottenheimer also interviewed with the Jaguars last year -- while still the offensive coordinator for the New York Jets -- before Jacksonville hired Mike Mularkey. The Jets fired Schottenheimer in January 2012, after which he joined the Rams under head coach Jeff Fisher. The Jaguars fired Mularkey Thursday after a 2-14 finish in his first year as head coach.

Schottenheimer has received positive reviews for his work with quarterback Sam Bradford but the Rams still finished near the bottom of the league's offensive statistics in scoring average, touchdowns and yards from scrimmage.

Schottenheimer, the son of former Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers head coach, Marty Schottenheimer, was an assistant for several NFL teams before becoming the quarterbacks coach for the Washington Redskins in 2001.
