Jacksonville Jaguars special teams coordinator Brian Schneider is taking an indefinite leave for personal reasons, according to multiple reports on Friday.
Schneider also took leave from the Seattle Seahawks last September due to personal reasons. It wasn’t immediately known if this leave is for similar seasons.
Schneider was hired by the Jaguars in January. He worked with new Jacksonville coach Urban Meyer at Colorado State from 1994-95 when Meyer was an assistant coach at the school.
Schneider, who turned 50 earlier this month, worked for Pete Carroll for one year at USC and followed him to the Seahawks in 2010 when Carroll left the college ranks to become Seattle’s coach.
Schneider also coached special teams for the then-Oakland Raiders for two seasons (2007-08). His stint at Colorado State was from 1994-2002, and he had other college stops at UCLA (2003-05) and Iowa State (2006).
Schneider was a linebacker at Colorado State from 1990-93. He earned first team All-Western Athletic Conference honors as a senior.
