The Buffalo Bills still haven't confirmed their coordinator hires.
But their top offensive aide, Nathaniel Hackett, has stated for the record that he's headed here.
Hackett confirmed what The Buffalo News reported Tuesday night, that he's leaving Syracuse University to join new Bills head coach Doug Marrone's staff.
"I am going to the Bills," Hackett told Syracuse Post-Standard reporter Nolan Weidner on Wednesday. "I'm ecstatic. It was something I just couldn't refuse."
Hackett was Marrone's offensive coordinator the past two seasons for the Orange.
"Doug gave me the keys to the car at Syracuse," Hackett said. "Now I'm excited to get another chance."Hackett didn't divulge any details about what the Bills intend to do offensively or how they'll address the quarterback position.
Soon, reporters should get the chance to ask him and new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine about their plans. No news conference has been announced yet.
