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.

    I was hoping for Armstrong but Boyer will have to do? With Armstrongs contract situation Atlanta blocked the Jets once again. I see this as a 1 year tryout until Armstrongs contract is over. Good luck Mr. Boyer

    Now all he has to do is find a return man, a punter, and possibly a kicker if the Jets feel Folk makes too much and let him walk. Plus some special teams players to round out the squad.

    Not much to ask for is it?

    Brant was a very good, try-hard player for our Jags. If he can get the Jets to play that hard on special teams, you won’t be waiting for Armstrong.
