Brian Schottenheimer Drawing Interest From Rams, Alabama In Addition To Falcons

If the Falcons really do have interest in Brian Schottenheimer to fill their vacant offensive coordinator post, they might want to move fast on an interview - the former New York Jets' play caller is apparently drawing lot of interest from newly-hired St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, in addition to already having interviewed with the University of Alabama on Saturday.

Schottenheimer's name was part of a list NFL.com's Jason La Canfora confirmed earlier this week as potential targets from the Falcons organization. According to La Canfora, the Falcons have officially requested to speak with only two candidates, former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements.

Is there also a potential for a family renunion in Florida? If so, it could pit Schottenheimer against Atlanta twice a year - his father Marty has been mentioned as a potential candidate to replace Raheem Morris as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch shot down the idea of a father-son coaching combo:

Marty Schottenheimer is a candidate for the head-coaching job in Tampa Bay, but indications are that Brian wants to cast his own lot in the NFL rather than joining his father if Marty gets the Bucs' job.
