Sean Snyder is a strong candidate to join the Nebraska staff, sources tell FootballScoop.

Snyder has spent the past 26 seasons on the Kansas State staff and was an All-Big 8 punter for the Wildcats in the early 1990s.

Snyder, of course, is the son of the legendary Bill Snyder, and was his father’s preferred successor to become the Wildcats’ next head coach upon his retirement at the end of the 2018 season. That, obviously, did not happen, but Snyder has remained on Chris Klieman’s staff as a senior special teams analyst.

Snyder is regarded as one of the best special teams coaches in the business. He was selected by his peers as the FootballScoop Special Teams Coordinator of the Year in 2015 and honored by Phil Steele in 2017. Under his watch, a Kansas State player earned the Big 12’s Special Teams Player of the Year award each year from 2013-15.

Nebraska recently lost its special teams coordinator after Jovan Dewitt joined the North Carolina staff earlier this month.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
