Nathaniel Hackett is making a lap through the NFC North.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Hackett is interviewing with the Packers for “a top offensive job.

Of course, new head coach Matt LaFleur will have the top offensive job, so even if it carries a coordinator title it might not have the traditional responsibilities.

Getting fired by the Jaguars last November doesn’t seem to have dimmed Hackett’s prospects, as he also interviewed with the Lions for their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Hackett had previously worked with Doug Marrone as offensive coordinator with the Bills and at Syracuse.

  1. LaFleur will be calling plays, but a good OC is also important to a offense. More quality offensive minds in the room when constructing game plans and scheme is only a positive. I don’t know enough about Hackett at this time to give a informed opinion on him.

    I do think it was very smart of Matt to keep Mike Pettine and continue the stability and positive path of that side of the ball.

    Expect to see a lot of Mike Pettine’s assistants back and pretty much a whole new offensive coaching staff.

  2. Jags were actually 3rd in points in 2017, though that had a lot to do with Fournette tearing up the league before he got dinged up later in the season. Hackett will have more talent to work with in GB than he had in Jax and Buffalo, one would assume.

  3. Most teams who made a change might have acted to soon. A lot of retreads out there make me wonder if most of those who did make a change will realize that they gained nothing..

  4. Even Bill Belicheck would not have had success with Blake Bortles. Hacket did as much as humanly possible. Guy deserves all the credit in the world for what he squeezed out of that offense.

    At best, the Packers have been just spinning their wheels the last few years. I have always stated that you don’t fire a coach like McCarthy unless you have someone in mind that you will be replacing him with. But in this case, it was just time. I don’t want to go backwards, but I think at this point, just an injection of new ideas and attitudes will propel the Packers forward. How far, and how long it lasts, still waits to be seen.
