While the Jacksonville Jaguars continue their work during Phase 2 of voluntary workouts, they will do so without one of their top-3 coordinators. According to multiple league sources, special teams coordinator Brian Schneider will be stepping away from the team indefinitely for personal reasons.

Schneider was one of many new coaches brought into the Jags’ organization by new coach Urban Meyer. Reports surfaced that Schneider would be joining the Jags back in late January. He previously was with the Seattle Seahawks dating back to 2010, but in September 2020, he had a similar situation come up where he took some time away from the team.

Under Schneider, the Seahawks allowed an average return of 22.2 yards on kickoffs and 6.3 yards on punts in 2019. That ranked the team 15th and 10th, respectively, in each category.

With the Jags, Schneider was going to work with kicker Josh Lambo and punter Logan Cooke, two of the best special teamers at their positions. However, if he doesn’t return this season, the task of leading the Jags’ special team group will fall on the Jags’ assistant special teams coach Carlos Polk.
