Cardinals Interview Hue Jackson For Offensive Coordinator Job


Ian Rapoport reports that the Cardinals interviewed former Browns HC Hue Jackson for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Friday.

As of now, Arizona has interviewed Jackson, Tom Clements, Jim Bob Cooter, John DeFilippo, and Steve Sarkisian for the position and have reportedly spoken with Ben McAdoo regarding their offensive coordinator job under Kliff Kingsbury. 

DeFilippo and Sarkisian have accepted jobs elsewhere leaving Jackson, Clements, Cooter and McAdoo as the names to watch for the Cardinals.

The Bengals actually interviewed for Jackson for their head-coaching job and he was mentioned as a possible offensive coordinator candidate for the Vikings. However, he was unable to secure either job.

Jackson, 53, began his NFL coaching career back in 2001 as the Redskins RBs coach. He worked for the Bengals, Falcons and Ravens before he was hired by the Raiders as their offensive coordinator in 2010.

Jackson was later promoted to head coach but lasted one season at the helm. After four years with the Bengals, Jackson was hired as the Browns head coach in 2016 but lasted just over three years in Cleveland.

The Bengals hired Jackson as a special assistant to HC Marvin Lewis before parting ways with him last week.

During his time as the Browns’ head coach, Jackson led them to a record of 3-36-1 (8.8 percent) and no playoff appearances.
