Last Friday, it was announced that the Jacksonville Jaguars would be hiring former Seattle Seahawks special teams coordinator Brian Schneider as their special teams coach — and it appears they’ve now found him some help. According to ESPN Field Yates, former Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Carlos Polk will be the Jags’ assistant special teams coach.

Polk, 43, started his coaching career in 2009 with the San Diego Chargers who drafted him. He spent four seasons there before heading to the Tampa Bay Bucs where he spent five seasons and found his way to Dallas with the Cowboys in 2019. While with the Bucs, Polk worked with Jags offensive line coach George Warhop. Each stint was as an assistant special teams coach.

Polk was drafted by the Chargers in the fourth round of the 2001 draft. He played there until 2007 and ended his career with the Cowboys in 2008. Polk exited the NFL with 121 total tackles (101 solo) and four sacks over the span of 74 games.

Schneider and Polk will combine for 22 years of NFL experience. While with Jacksonville they will work with two of the best special teamers in the NFL in kicker Josh Lambo and punter Logan Cooke.
