The head coaching position for the Denver Broncos has been a revolving door as of late, with four head coaching hires dating back to 2016.

After much speculation, the team’s newest head coach is now known. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported this morning that the Denver Broncos have hired Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach.

He will be replacing former coach Vic Fangio, who was fired earlier this month after a disappointing 7-10 record this season.

Here are some reactions around the NFL world on the latest hiring by the Denver Broncos.

This hiring will further add to the speculation of Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers coming to Denver, something that has been talked about extensively in the past few weeks.

Rodgers has been very complimentary of Hackett during his time as offensive coordinator of the Packers, saying previously that he hopes that Hackett doesn’t go anywhere without him in the future…

While Rodgers says that his future is up in the air, you have to believe that going to a franchise with a ton of cap flexibility and a familiar head coach with a pretty talented roster for him would be enticing.

In a division like the AFC West with star quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert you have to play two times a year, you need to have someone who can match that level of productivity. The Broncos have just not had that in recent years with the likes of Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock. It appears that the franchise may be putting the wheels in motion to attract a star quarterback like Aaron Rodgers to the organization.
