Bengals Coach Hue Jackson Likely To Stay; Scheduled To Meet With Panthers Monday

Frederick M. Brown

Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson has been connected to a handful of offensive coordinator positions but one report suggests that he "appears likely to stay in Cincinnati." However he's scheduled to meet with the Panthers on Monday.

According to Jason La Canfora with CBSSports.com, who has been a coaching update tweeting machine, writes on Saturday that Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson appears likely to stay in Cincinnati, despite Carolina's request for an interview and the New York Jets' reported interest.

Jackson does not have an interview with the Panthers, contrary to a report, and Carolina might end up promoting quarterback coach David Shula for its coordinator job following the departure of Rob Chudzinski to Cleveland.

The Jets have expressed interest in Jackson for their offensive coordinator opening, but Jackson has not scheduled anything there, either. The opportunity to stay with the Bengals and work with quarterback Andy Dalton seems more attractive than entering the cauldron in New York with a coach on the hot seat and embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Jackson was also rumored to be in the running for the head coaching job at Cal earlier this year until Sonny Dykes was named in early December.

La Canfora also mentioned that Jackson would be in line for the Bengals offensive coordinator job if Jay Gruden left for a head coaching gig. But that information is as "new" as learning that gravity is what keeps our feet on the ground.

However according to Albert Breer with the NFL Network, there is an interview scheduled between Jackson and the Carolina Panthers.

Who to believe?!
