The Jacksonville Jaguars are having a disappointing season. On Monday, they fired their offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
He was fired after a 24-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The Jaguars are on a seven-game losing streak.
Prior to the season, he was lauded for his play calling abilities.
“We would like to thank Nathaniel for his hard work and dedication for the Jaguars organization, and we wish him and his family the best moving forward,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “There are always tough decisions, but as the head coach, I have to do what I think is best for this football team.”
Hackett had served as the Jaguars offensive coordinator for the past three seasons. He was promoted to the position after the Jaguars fired former offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
Prior to being promoted to offensive coordinator, he served as the Jaguars quarterbacks coach in 2015 and 2016.
Hackett also was the Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014 under Marrone. He also worked as the Syracuse Orange offensive coordinator, also under Marrone.
He spent the 2010 season as the Orange’s quarterbacks coach and tight ends coach. He was the Bulls offensive quality control coach in 2008 and 2009.
Hackett was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive quality control coach in 2006 and 2007. Prior to his appointment with the Buccaneers, he spent the 2005 season as the Stanford Cardinal recruiting coordinator.
He also was the Coordinator’s assistant in 2004 with the Cardinal. Hackett was an offensive assistant with the Cardinal in 2003.
He began his coaching career with UC Davis in 2003 as an assistant linebackers coach.
