Schneider played three seasons with the Hens, before being taken in the 13th round of the 2002 MLB Draft by the Blue Jays.
He spent all six of his professional seasons in the minors, reaching AAA Syracuse in 2003 and 2005-07.
Schneider becomes the third former Blue Hen player to coach in the Majors, joining 1980 Phillies World Series manager Dallas Green and Lee Elia, who also served as Phillies manager from 1987-88.
