On Thursday, the Denver Broncos officially announced that they will hire Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their next head coach.
Nathaniel Hackett has extensive quarterback training experience, but this will be the first time in his career as a head coach. Hiring Nathaniel Hackett will also fuel speculation, as the Denver Broncos hope to lure Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams to Denver.
During the Denver Broncos interview, Nathaniel Hackett was asked how he would go from coaching the offense to the entire team, as well as assembling the defensive coaching staff. Nathaniel Hackett also needs to answer how he’s going to make sure he can keep his game day organized if he continues to play.
The Denver Broncos defense finished in the top 10 in most categories last season, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater missed the last three games but also passed for a career-high 18 touchdowns. However, the overall poor performance of the offense, coupled with the inconsistent performance of the special team, eventually cost former coach Vic Fangio his job.
