Jacksonville Jaguars to Hire Nathaniel Hackett for Quarterbacks Coach


More from Jacksonville Jaguars News

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been making sweeping changes on the offensive side of the ball since firing offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. Over the course of the last week, the Jaguars have hired former Buffalo Bills head coach

Doug Marrone

to be their offensive line coach, former Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson to be the new offensive coordinator, and former Raiders running backs coach Kelly Skipper for the same position.

It should come as no surprise then that the Jaguars are continuing their offensive renovations, as NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport is reporting the team is hiring Nathaniel Hackett to be the new QB coach.

Hackett is presumably replacing Frank Scelfo as the QB coach, but it’s not clear if Scelfo has been dismissed or if he will remain with the team in some capacity. He reportedly has a good rapport with Blake Bortles, so it wouldn’t be shocking if he stayed on as an assistant.

Hackett was the offensive coordinator for the Bills over the last 2 seasons, and he held the same position with Syracuse University in years prior. Hackett didn’t have much to work with as far as the quarterback position in Buffalo, as the likes of E.J. Manuel, Jeff Tuel, and Kyle Orton were his only options, but he did a good job of coaching up Ryan Nassib at Syracuse.

The Jaguars have an almost completely new offensive staff, so hopefully that pays dividends when the regular season begins.
