The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that former Oakland Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson is returning to the Bengals as an assistant coach. Jackson spent 3 seasons with the Bengals as Wide Receivers coach where he helped Chad Johnson and TJ Houshmanzadeh become one of the best tandems in the league. Currently Jackson will serve as an assistant to the secondary and Special Teams.
“Hue is a tremendous addition to our staff,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “I relied on Hue greatly when he was with us (in 2004-06), and his success overall in the NFL, including being selected for a head coaching position, is well documented. He has expertise in all aspects of the game, and we are fortunate to have obtained his services.”
“I just want to coach football. I have a long relationship with Marvin and I’m looking to helping and assisting whoever in trying to help the organization attain its goal,” Jackson said. “I’ve got a lot to learn, but who better to learn from than Marvin Lewis and Mike Zimmer? Those are two guys that I know and I’m comfortable with and Darrin is one the better special teams coaches in the league.”
It is also reported that former Raiders CB Stanford Routt is in town visiting the Bengals as well.
