Hue Jackson no longer coaches the Cleveland Brown. And from what we can tell, he’s probably okay with that. But what about his next job? Would he be willing to go from being head coach to assistant position? Well, it’s certainly a possibility for Jackson since being terminated last week.
Jackson, 53, failed to return Cleveland to their winning ways after guiding them to a 3-36-1 record over parts of three seasons in charge. But he has called the NFL home since 2001 after coaching at the collegiate level. And he doesn’t want to leave it.
“If there’s somebody who I know and trust and respect, felt like they needed me to help or do something for them along the lines of assisting in any way that I can to help them be as good as they can be on game day. I would do that in a heartbeat,” Jackson told Adam Schefter on his podcast.
Despite his unsuccessful turn as the Browns’ head coach, he believes that someone (anyone?) could use his services. He was Cincinnati’s offensive coordinator during the 2014 and 2015 seasons and wants something similar to that role.
“Oh absolutely, I would,” Jackson added. “And I’m not going to run from the opportunity to sit in the head chair again either. I know I can do it. There’s no question in my mind that I can. I know my record doesn’t say that and rightfully so. I get it. But I know that I can go coordinate offenses in the National Football League tomorrow if given an opportunity.”
Let’s see if anyone gives him that opportunity.
