Jeff Hammerschmidt returns for his second season as the assistant special teams coach. He initially joined the staff with Special Teams Coordinator Brant Boyer in 2016, his first season in the NFL after a 24-year career coaching in the collegiate ranks.

In Hammerschmidt’s first season, kicker Nick Folk connected on 87.1% of his field goal attempts, tied for the sixth best in the league last season and the fourth-highest mark in team history. Additionally, seventh-round rookie punter Lachlan Edwards matched a team-rookie record with 75 punts.

Prior to joining the Jets, Hammerschmidt served as a special teams coordinator for his alma mater Arizona (2008-11) before working in the same capacity at Colorado State (2012-15). In his time with the Rams, both the punter and kicker received honorable mention all-conference honors. Throughout his career, Hammerschmidt has coached every level of the defense (secondary, linebackers and defensive line) while also serving as a defensive coordinator for Southern Utah (1996-97), Saint Mary’s (2000-02) and Montana (2003-04). He began his coaching career in 1992 as a graduate assistant at Arizona and has since worked with a handful of current and former NFL players, including Kris Dielman, Adewale Ogunleye, Antwaan Randle El and Brooks Reed.
