Discussed #49ers coaching search on @NFLGameDay: Hue Jackson interviews with 49ers brass. If all goes well, he could end today as SF’s coach
The 50-year-old Jackson is certainly no stranger to Bay Area football fans. He actually interviewed with the 49ers for their head coaching job in early 2011 before the team hired Jim Harbaugh. Jackson then took over the Raiders’ top post that season, going 8-8 before being fired. The Bengals averaged 26.2 points a game this year on offense.
