It had to happen.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Denver Broncos have fired now former Head Coach, Nathaniel Hackett. UPDATE: The Broncos have confirmed this move and have released a state via the teams Owner and CEO Greg Penner.

In that statement, Penner states that this move was made in the best interest of the Broncos, and allows the team to immediately begin their Head Coaching search.

Obviously, we all saw this move coming. Hackett had issues since day one with his game management, then play-calling, couldn’t close games, handed over play-calling duties, and last night, we saw turmoil all over the field. It was a mess, and quarterback Russell Wilson’s decline in play just amplified how badly Hackett was doing.

This is why Hackett only lasted 15 games with the Broncos and was fired before the end of his first season with the team.

Now, for the second straight season, the Broncos are looking for a Head Coach. No names have been put out there as possible candidates just yet, but Dallas Cowboy’s defensive coordinator Dan Quinn seems like the early favorite for the job. However, a lot and can will change in the coming weeks.

More on this developing story soon.
