Hue Jackson takes on new roles for the Bengals in 2014 according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network. Jackson will become the next Offensive Coordinator replacing Jay Gruden who left to become the next Head Coach of the Washington Redskins.
Jackson is in his second term as a Bengals assistant, having rejoined Cincinnati in 2012. He was Oakland Raiders head coach in 2011, with an 8-8 record that tied for best in the AFC West. Released by the Raiders after the break-even season, Jackson spent ’12 in Cincinnati assisting position coaches with special teams and defensive backs.Hue Jackson is in his 13th NFL season. He has been offensive coordinator for three NFL teams – Oakland, Atlanta and Baltimore. Before entering the NFL, he coached 14 years in the college ranks.
With Jay Gruden in place, Hue Jackson will likely remain in Cincinnati as offensive coordinator. Won’t go to Redskins, I’m told.
