Could Aaron Rodgers follow Nathaniel Hackett to Broncos?
The Denver Broncos have lined up Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach, and some are thinking ahead.
The Denver Broncos are to appoint Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach, according to reports. And there are some who are putting two and two together and getting Aaron Rodgers following behind.
Could Hackett move hurt Packers more than once?
The Broncos parted company with previous head coach Vic Fangio at the end of the 2021 NFL regular season, in which the team had a 7-10 record.
Also in NFL news:
Fangio achieved a 19-30 record during his time with the franchise, failing to reach the playoffs throughout his tenure.
Other figures interviewed by the Broncos for the role were Eric Bieniemy from the Kansas City Chiefs, Brian Callahan from the Cincinnati Bengals, Jonathan Gannon from the Philadelphia Eagles, Luke Getsy from the Packers, Aaron Glenn from the Detroit Lions, Jerod Mayo from the New England Patriots, Kevin O'Connell of the Los Angeles Rams, and Kellen Moore and Dan Quinn from the Dallas Cowboys.
Hackett, who is the son of former NFL coach Paul Hackett, has been offensive coordinator at the Packers for the past three seasons. Green Bay's offense ranked first in the league in scoring and fifth in yards in the 2020 season, although they regressed to 10th in both categories this year.
Hackett is also a former playcaller for both the Buffalo Bills and the Jaguars.
Let's now wait and see how the speculation that the Broncos could make a sensational play to bring superstar Green Bay duo Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams to Denver.
