DENVER, Col. (WSAW) - The Denver Broncos are finalizing a deal to hire Packers’ offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero is reporting.

Hackett has been with the Packers since 2019, leading a Packers offense that has been ranked in the top ten of the NFL in many offensive stats during his three seasons.

Before Green Bay, Hackett was an offensive coordinator for three seasons for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

When asked about potentially replacing Hackett and filling the offensive coordinator position in Monday’s final press conference, Matt LaFleur indicated an internal option to replace Hackett would be likely.

“We’ve got so many good guys. It’s not going to be an easy decision,” LaFleur said.

Quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy is seen as the most likely option to be promoted to offensive coordinator. Marshfield native and current offensive line coach/running game coordinator Adam Stenavich is another candidate to fill the position.
