Brian Schottenheimer’s unremarkable time in the SEC has officially come to an end.
The former UGA offensive coordinator has been hired by the Indianapolis Colts as a quarterbacks coach, the team announced Monday afternoon, after he spent only one season in Athens, Ga. It was a move expected to happen based on an ESPN report from Sunday. For Schottenheimer, the stint marked his first time coaching in the college ranks since 2000, when he was a tight ends coach at Southern Cal.
Under Schottenheimer, the Bulldogs finished with the nation’s 83rd-ranked total offense and averaged just 26.3 points per game, with the latter being the lowest mark among the state of Georgia’s four FBS schools (Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, Georgia State). The decision was made to not retain Schottenheimer after UGA fired coach Mark Richt at the end of the season.
