Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is in Denver for his second interview with the Broncos about their head coaching job and Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was asked about his possible departure at a Monday press conference.

LaFleur said that he plans to “absolutely” promote from within if Hackett does get hired by the Broncos or one of the other teams that he’s interviewed with this month. He added that the move would not be a snap decision.

“It’s not going to be an easy decision,” LaFleur said, via Rob Demovsky of

Quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator Luke Getsy and offensive line coach/run game coordinator Adam Stenavich would seem to be the likeliest promotion candidates on LaFleur’s staff.

  1. If Hackett was smart he would take any head coaching job. If Rodgers leaves, Packers will be a 6 – 11 team the following year if their lucky

  2. I think that the SPECIAL TEAMS coach should be PROMOTED from within!!!


    Yes, he should be promoted out the door!!

  3. I think Gerbschmidt should get hired, because he knows so much football predicting Packers would go to Superbowl every year.

  4. I think he meant to say he hopes Rodgers stays to continue serving as the Offensive Coordinator, Play Caller, QB Coach & Passing Game Coordinator. All these schmucks, LaFleur included, will be exposed when Rodgers is gone.

  5. If Rodgers stays, whoever gets the OC job will be very successful, and become very wealthy. Why not keep it in house??
