Hackett was hired Thursday to be the quarterbacks coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who hired Marrone to coach their offensive line last week. Hackett was the Bills’ offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014, but was replaced by Greg Roman this offseason after Marrone opted out of his contract on New Year’s Eve after two years as the Bills’ head coach.

When the Buffalo Bills were spurned by head coach Doug Marrone just hours before the turn of the New Year, few could have predicted the 12-day journey that would lead them to hiring former New York Jets head man Rex Ryan. Despite a laundry list of candidates, including 12 who were interviewed for the head coach position, owners Terry and Kim Pegula wrangled in the former division rival.

They had their guy.

Bills fans have heard that sentiment before. Too much. But the Pegulas’ first major action as new owners had a different feel, for the first time since Wade Phillips took over the team’s coaching job in the late 1990s.
