Reports: Grambling State to hire former Browns coach Jackson


Former Browns coach and Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinato­r Hue Jackson is expected to be named the coach of the Grambling State Tigers.

According to multiple reports, the school will hold a Friday news conference to announce the hiring of Jackson, who just completed his first season as Tennessee State’s offensive coordinato­r and quarterbac­ks coach.

Jackson spent part of the 2018 season with the Bengals as a special assistant to then-head coach Marvin Lewis and was considered a candidate to replace Lewis before they hired Zac Taylor.

Jackson was also the Bengals’ wide receivers coach from 2004 to 2006. He returned to Cincinnati as an assistant when the Oakland Raiders fired him following their 8-8 season in 2011, Jackson’s first year as a head coach. He was a Bengals assistant and offensive coordinato­r before the Cleveland Browns hired him to be their coach in 2016. He went 3-36-1 there.
