The source said all that was left to make the move official was the completion of the contract.

Schottenheimer told the New York Jets on Tuesday that he would not be returning as offensive coordinator next season after six years in the position, and the team quickly moved to replace him with former Dolphins coach Tony Sparano.

Schottenheimer, 38, had spoken with the University of Alabama about its vacant offensive coordinator position on Friday, and reportedly began his interview with the Rams on Sunday morning.

According to the NFL Network, Schottenheimer and new coach Jeff Fisher spent Sunday night discussing the role.

Fisher, 53, parted ways with the Titans last January after more than 16 seasons, during which he established Tennessee as a regular playoff contender and took the 1999 team to the Super Bowl, losing 23-16 to the Rams.

He had been a top candidate for the vacant jobs in both St. Louis and Miami, before it emerged Friday that he would be joining the Rams.
