But that is exactly what happened to a former Buffalo Bills coach and offensive coordinator.
This was Hackett's first-ever head coaching job in the NFL or in college and it did not go well. The Broncos made a massive trade in the offseason for quarterback Russell Wilson and ended up going 4-11 so far this season.
The Broncos are currently in last place in the AFC West and have the 2nd worst record in the entire AFC.
Hackett spent two years working with the Buffalo Bills. In 2008 he was the Offensive quality control coach before he left for a job at Syracuse. He returned to Buffalo as the Offensive Coordinator in 2013 when Syracuse Head coach Doug Marrone became the Bills' head coach.
The Bills went 7-9 in 2008 and 6-10 in 2013.
Most of Hackett's success came as an offensive coordinator with the Green Bay Packers. While working with quarterback Aaron Rogers, Hackett's offense won 39 games in three years. The success of the Green Bay offense led to the Broncos hiring him as their head coach this season.
The Broncos will now be looking to hire their next head coach over the next couple of weeks. Could Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier be on the shortlist? We will find out.
