He has been an important part of our staff already and has a great grasp of where we are and where we want to go,” Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy said in a statement. “Brian also has an exceptionally strong foundation, history and relationships beyond his time here that translate very well into understanding what our approach to operating and executing will be for the future. This will be an exciting and efficient transition for us that I am confident will help yield the growth and results we all want and expect.”Schottenheimer, 49, was the Jacksonville Jaguars’ passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2021.
