Brian Schottenheimer to Step Down as Offensive Coordinator

Amidst the whirlwind of news tonight, there are confirmed reports that offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has decided to step down from his position. He has apparently told the team that he is stepping down and will no longer serve. Jet fans, your dreams have come true.

I don't believe I need to get into the details of how important this is to the team. It's difficult to find even a single defender of Schottenheimer anymore. There will be plenty of time in the coming days to discuss who will replace Schottenheimer, however I suspect the Jets will move quickly to replace him. My gut feeling is that Todd Haley and Tony Sparano will come to the Jets as a joint package, forming a passing and running game duo. I think that may be one of the best possible scenarios, as the Jets try to replace Bill Callahan, the outgoing offensive line guru. In any case, please celebrate below and let us know who you would like to replace Brian Schottenheimer.
