Nick Sorensen replaces Brian Schneider as Jacksonville Jaguars' special-teams coordinator

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Nick Sorensen as special-teams coordinator to replace Brian Schneider, who stepped away from the team for personal reasons.

Sorensen spent the past eight seasons with Seattle, joining the Seahawks in 2013 as a special-teams assistant before moving to coach the secondary beginning in 2017.

Sorensen played 10 years as a safety and special-teams player in the NFL, including four seasons with the Jaguars (2003-06).

He also played for the St. Louis Rams and the Cleveland Browns.
