A week after Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum maintained that Brian Schottenheimer would be welcomed back if he didn’t receive a head coaching job, the Jets essentially fired the maligned offensive coordinator on Tuesday night.

The team announced the move with a press release stating that “Schottenheimer informed the New York Jets today that he will not return for the 2012 season,” but make no mistake: Ryan didn’t want Schottenheimer to return for a seventh season as the offensive play caller.

A source told the Daily News that former Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano, who was fired during the season, will replace Schottenheimer as the new offensive coordinator.
