The Cincinnati Bengals have just announced that former Bengals WR coach and ex-Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson is joining Bengals as assistant coach helping the secondary and special teams. Jackson coached the Bengals wide receivers from 2004-06, and will now help coach the team’s defensive backs and special teams. The 46-year-old Jackson was fired by the Raiders in January after just one 8-8 season as their head coach after serving as their offensive coordinator in 2010. Before his coaching stop in Oakland, Jackson coached quarterbacks with the Baltimore Ravens from 2008-09 and was an offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007. Jackson was also the Washington Redskins running back coach in 2001-02. His only experience coaching special teams was at the college level during his time at Pacific and Cal State-Fullerton. One would have to think that despite this title, Jackson will be spending a little time working with A.J. Green and Andy Dalton. Welcome back Jack.
