Eroding Faith in Brian Schottenheimer Helped Lead to Russell Wilson’s Eventual Departure From Seahawks

RENTON, WA – Throughout their three seasons paired together as quarterback and play caller, Russell Wilson persistently backed Brian Schottenheimer publicly. And why wouldn’t he?

With Schottenheimer calling the shots either from the sideline or the sky box, the Seahawks finished in the top-10 in scoring offense each of his three seasons at the helm. Orchestrating the show under center like a magician, Wilson enjoyed three of his finest seasons, averaging 35 touchdown passes, 7.8 yards per attempt, and posting a 107.2 passer rating in 48 games. He made three consecutive Pro Bowls and earned his first All-Pro selection after tossing 40 touchdowns in 2020.
