According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the two sides are talking on Sunday. Schottenheimer resigned from the Jets last week and wanted to explore other options. Meanwhile, Fisher is trying to put together his coaching staff after spurning the Miami Dolphins for the Rams two days ago.
Schottenheimer struggled in New York last year. Players increasingly became unhappy with his play calling and things became toxic. The Jets were 25th in the NFL offensively.
Interestingly enough, the Rams will host the Jets next season. It would be fun to see New York's talented defense against a Schottenheimer-led offense, if St. Louis decides to go in that direction. Both would have motivation to do well.
How would Jets fans feel about this?
