A tweet came down this afternoon from Alby Oxenreiter, Sports Director for WPXI (NBC) in Pittsburgh that Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin may be considering former Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson for the vacant Coordinator position on the offense.

Jackson has spent time with a number of teams over his professional coaching career; starting out with the Redskins as their Running Backs Coach from 2001-2002. He was promoted by then Head Coach Steve Spurrier, to Offensive Coordinator. He then moved on to coach the Bengals Wide Receivers through the 2006 season where he worked with big names such as Chad Ochocinco and T. J. Houshmandzadeh , two names that Steelers fans know all too well.

In 2007 he became the Offensive Coordinator of the Falcons but that only lasted 1 year before moving on next to the Ravens to be their QB Coach. He worked with Joe Flacco, another name all too familiar to the Steelers, for the next 2 seasons.

In 2010 he took over as the Head Coach of the Raiders. Under Jackson’s guidance, the Raiders offense finished fourth in the AFC and sixth in the NFL in scoring (25.6 points per game) also finished fifth in the AFC and 10th in the NFL in total offense (354.6 yards per game) and second in the NFL and AFC in rushing (155.9 yards per game). The Raiders more than doubled their scoring output from the previous year, totaling 410 points.

There has been no official word yet from the Steelers if an interview will take place but it’s certain something to watch for.

WOW!!! The Steelers MAY be interested in possibly considering Hue Jackson!!!

Thats really going out on a limb there. I wonder if they MAY be interested in trading a 7th round pick for Ray Lewis. They MAY be interested in bringing in former WWF wrestler Tito Santana to answer phone calls in Spanish at the ticket office. They MAY consider having the Defense drop into the stadium paratrooper style on sunday home games.

Seriously all this lazy journalism has got to go. If you have something, report it. If you dont, dont.

Oxenreiter tweeted it, and this guy wrote something up about Jackson's past as a coach.


I think this is actually a good article.

Was Jackson in charge of the Raiders offense as their head coach ? If not, I see no point of interviewing him or even giving him any consideration.

Why not? He was an offensive coach with Washington (RB, O.C.), Cincinnati (WR), Atlanta (O.C.), and Baltimore (QB) before that...he has head coaching experience, experience as an offensive coordinator, and has been a position coach everywhere on offense except for o-line and tight ends.

Next Please. If this is the best the Steelers can do then they might as well try to get Arians back.

I think you are a overreacting a tad. That being said, I like the Tito Santana reference. Here he is interviewing for the position ... (i am sure Ruthless could find something better)

So, your saying the guy can't hold down a job.

I don't feel like hue has had enough success calling plays, and perhaps, designing them.

This is ridiculous.

I like those XMen movies and all but does he know OUR football? Or that Aussie rules stuff, cause that is a whole different game.

I guess the title of his latest movie can be used as a slogan for the return to the kind of offense we had in years past that the Rooney's want. I guess that makes a little sense.

But still he is just an acto.......

Oh wait.....the name is JACKSON?
Nevermind.

Before Campbell and McFadden got hurt, the Raiders offense was pretty effective. I think Jackson would be a good choice. He won't be coddling Ben, and that's what is needed. Fitchner is just an extension of Arians and was part of the problem.

And in college he as been a RB and QB coach as well as offensive coordinator at Cal and USC.

He has a very deep resume....

..and he actually played football in high school and college(as a QB). :wink:

:Agree I'd have no issues with Jackson. I think he would be very effective with the players we have.

One question I have is would a new guy bring in a new playbook or use the existing one. If not the latter then I think it could be a problem.

Hue Jackson returns to the Bengals

Posted by Mike Florio on February 17, 2012

http://nbcprofootballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/jackson.jpg?w=135

Apparently, the trade that sent Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer to the Raiders also included a coach to be named later.

The Bengals have announced that former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson has been hired. He’ll serve as an assistant coach helping the secondary and special teams.

“Hue is a tremendous addition to our staff,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said in a team-issued release. “I relied on Hue greatly when he was with us, 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.”

It looks a little like make-work for Jackson, whose past experiences primarily focused on the offensive side of the ball. According to his bio from his time at USC, Jackson worked with special teams in 1988 and 1989 at Pacific, in 1991 with the London Monarchs, and in 1991 at Cal State-Fullerton.

Jackson previously spent three years with the Bengals, from 2004 through 2006, as receivers coach.

Makes sense, Bengals...he's got experience as a head coach, offensive coordinator, WR coach, QB coach, RB coach...lets have him work with the DB's and special teamers. Why not?
