Sorensen was originally hired by the Seahawks as a special teams assistant in 2013. He moved into the role of secondary coach in 2017 and also served as the team’s nickel specialist in 2020.
Before getting into coaching, Sorensen spent 10 years in the NFL as a safety and special teams contributor from 2001-10. He played for the St. Louis Rams (2001-02), Jacksonville Jaguars (2003-06) and Cleveland Browns (2007-10).
During his four seasons in Jacksonville, Sorensen served as the Jaguars’ special teams captain.

A former quarterback and defensive back at Virginia Tech during his college days, Sorensen is replacing Brian Schneider as Jacksonville’s special teams coordinator. Schneider recently left the staff due to personal reasons.
Schneider spent 2010-20 as the special teams coordinator with the Seahawks before being hired by the Jaguars this offseason. Therefore, it makes sense that Meyer turned to Sorensen, who worked under him in Seattle, to replace him in Jacksonville.
