In a move that few could have foreseen when the Seahawks began the season as one of the best offenses in the NFL, the team announced Tuesday afternoon it has parted ways with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

In a Tweet sent Monday afternoon, the team stated: “Brian Schottenheimer is a fantastic person and coach and we thank him for the last three years. Citing philosophical differences, we have parted ways.’’

Schottenheimer spent three seasons as Seattle’s offensive coordinator, hired after Darrell Bevell was fired following the 2017 season.

The Seahawks scored 459 points this season, the most in team history, and became the fifth team since the 1970 merger to start a season 3-0 and score 35-plus points in each game.

But the offense sputtered down the stretch of the season with the Seahawks held to 20 points or less in four of the last six games of the season, including Saturday’s 30-20 loss to the Rams in a wild-card playoff game.

Coach Pete Carroll had somewhat sidestepped a question about changes on his coaching staff when he talked to the media Monday saying it was not something he would discuss but then added “I’m counting on everybody coming back.’’
