Following the conclusion of the regular season, hirings and firings are happening all over the National Football League, including in Seattle with the Seahawks’ staff.

Still in the hunt for an offensive coordinator to replace Brian Schottenheimer after parting ways with him last week, the Seahawks are now having to determine a new special teams coordinator as well.

Citing a league source, NFL Network analyst Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Jaguars are expected to hire Seattle’s Brian Schneider as their special teams coordinator.

With Schneider leaving Seattle, Pelissero is also reporting the Seahawks are exected to promote from within.

“With Brian Schneider departing for Jacksonville, the #Seahawks are expected to promote Larry Izzo to replace Schneider as special teams coordinator, per source,” Pelissero tweeted on Friday.

Izzo had filled in during the 2020 season when Schnieder had taken a leave of absence for personal reasons.
