New Bills coach Doug Marrone has made his first hire. And it’s a hire that Marrone previously has made.
According to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, Marrone has hired Nathaniel Hackett, who served as Marrone’s offensive coordinator at Syracuse. The move comes a day after ESPN reported that Hackett would remain at Syracuse, in that position.
Hackett, 33, will serve as the offensive coordinator of the Bills. And while Marrone said Monday that he wants coordinators with “thorough NFL experience,” Hackett has only four years’ experience in the NFL, all as an offensive quality control coach.
