Nathaniel Hackett cracks funny joke about taking on Matt LaFleur
Nathaniel Hackett was introduced as the new coach of the Denver Broncos on Friday, and he flashed a pretty good sense of humor at his press conference.
Hackett jokingly shared his big ambition as Broncos coach: he wants to challenge Green Bay’s Matt LaFleur for the title of “sexiest head coach.”

LaFleur’s looks have been the source of a lot of jokes and memes. Even Aaron Rodgers has been seen embracing that, so it’s fair to say Hackett is facing an uphill battle here.
To be clear, Hackett just came from working under LaFleur in Green Bay. This is all in fun, at least as long as Hackett accepts he’s probably not going to win that title. The Broncos would probably settle for a Super Bowl instead.
