Ouch! Jaguars hire Nathaniel Hackett as quarterbacks coach
The Associated Press is reporting that the Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Nathaniel Hackett to become their quarterbacks coach. Wow, that shows you what the NFL thinks of Hackett and Marrone. I have to think that Bills fans will have to laugh when they hear that Hackett is the quarterback coach considering how poorly EJ Manuel performed and fell out of favor — and how barely serviceable Orton was for the Bills.
He follows his former Bills boss Doug Marrone, who was hired last week as the Jaguars assistant head coach and offensive line coach. Marrone abruptly quit the Bills on Dec. 31 by exercising an opt-out clause in his contract.
Hackett was not retained by Rex Ryan, Hackett had been a candidate to replace Brian Schottenheimer as the St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator.
