Hue Jackson has done the impossible. He’s managed to get fired by two NFL teams in the same season, just three months apart. The Bengals announced on Friday that they fired Hue Jackson
That’s not an easy thing to do, especially when it took almost three full seasons to get fired from the first job.
Via Pro Football Talk:
That means Jackson has lost two jobs in less than three months. Neither firing should have come as a surprise to Jackson.
He went 3-36-1 in Cleveland, and Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis hired Jackson as special assistant to the head coach on Nov. 13. Lewis parted ways with the team after the season, and the Bengals are set to hire Rams assistant Zac Taylor when Los Angeles’ season ends.
It turns out the Bengals aren’t in need of a special assistant. Who knew?
The move is a step in the right direction for the Bengals. Hiring Jackson as Marvin Lewis’ successor would have been a disaster.
