Packers Interviewing Nathaniel Hackett For Offensive Coordinator Job



Ian Rapoport reports that the Packers are interviewing former Jaguars OC Nathaniel Hackett on Friday for their offensive coordinator job.

According to Tom Silverstein, the Packers are considering former Jaguars OC Nathaniel Hackett for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

A report from earlier in the day mentioned that Hackett was under consideration for the Lions’ job.

The Packers have also reached out to 49ers run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel, but it doesn’t appear as though he’ll be available.

Hackett, 39, began his NFL coaching career with the Buccaneers back in 2006 as an offensive quality control coach. After two years in Tampa Bay, the Bills hired him for the same position.

Hackett later became the QB/TEs coach at Syracuse and worked his way up to offensive coordinator a year later. After Doug Marrone was hired as the Bills’ head coach, Hackett returned to Buffalo as the team’s offensive coordinator.

Hackett followed Marrone to the Jaguars and has served as their offensive coordinator the past three seasons before being fired last November.

In 2018, the Jaguars ranked No. 22 in total yards, No. 28 in points scored, No. 16 in rushing yards and No. 22 in passing yards at the time they fired Hackett.

Hackett became the scapegoat this year. When! The typical Tom Coughlin Implosion is what really happened! It all started in preseason, with Jalen Ramsey running his mouth about any and all players he could trash talk about. Then you have the Isolation Twins known as Fournette and Yeldon way underperforming, coupled with the fact that Bortles is nothing more then a backup (Christian Ponder 2.0). It won’t… Read more »
