The Jets are hiring Brant Boyer as their new special teams coach, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported Tuesday.

Boyer has spent the last four seasons as assistant special teams coach with the Colts, his first full-time coaching job. He served as a coaching intern with the Giants and Browns following a 10-year playing career.

Boyer replaces Bobby April, who was fired last month after the Jets’ special teams faltered late last season.

Boyer was a longtime special teams player for the Jaguars (1995-2000) and Browns (2001-03) and at one time served as a captain in both Jacksonville and Cleveland. He played in 129 career games.
