It was clear that the New York Jets were in need of a new offensive coordinator heading into the offseason, but it’s safe to say that fans aren’t too happy with the choice the team made.

According to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter of ESPN, the New York Jets are hiring previously-fired Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett as their next offensive coordinator.

“Jets are hiring former Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett as their OC, per source,” Schefter said in a tweet on Thursday morning.

Hackett, of course, was the head coach of the Broncos this season before he was ultimately fired toward the end of the year. Under his leadership, the Broncos had the worst scoring offense in the entire NFL, and star quarterback Russell Wilson had what was by far the worst season of his entire career.

All in all, it’s pretty safe to say that this was not a popular choice by the Jets, and the NFL world certainly had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

Of course, many Jets fans are undoubtedly hoping that hiring Hackett as the team’s offensive coordinator will make it more likely that star quarterback Aaron Rodgers would consider joining the roster. But if that doesn’t happen, this seems like a pretty uninspiring move.
