Denver Broncos have hired Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach. He was previously the Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator.
The Broncos announced Hackett as their 18th head coach in team history on Thursday. He beat out nine other candidates to get the job.
This will be Hackett’s first head coaching opportunity. He takes over for Vic Fangio, who was fired at the end of the season.
“Nathaniel Hackett is a dynamic leader and coach whose intelligence, innovation, and charisma impressed us from the very start of this process,” General Manager George Paton said in a statement. “In addition to having a brilliant offensive mind, Nathaniel is an outstanding teacher and communicator with a strong vision for all three phases of our team. Getting to know Nathaniel over the last couple of weeks, he will bring positive energy and enthusiasm to the entire Denver Broncos organization as our head coach. Creating a winning and competitive environment for the players, coaches, and staff — and doing it through personal connections and efficiency — is a big part of his plan for the Broncos.
“From developing younger players to working with all-time greats as a key part of winning teams, Nathaniel has had tremendous success in this league. He’s a student of the game and knows how to put players in positions to win. I could not be more excited to partner with Nathaniel and welcome him along with his family — his wife, Megan, and children Harrison, London, Briar, and Everly — to the Denver Broncos.”
He spent three seasons as the Packers offensive coordinator. He also served as offensive coordinator with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills.
He also spent time as the Jaguars’ quarterbacks coach. He also spent time with the Bills and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their offensive quality control coach.
He also coached in college at UC Davis, Stanford, and Syracuse.
