Bengals Officially Announce Hue Jackson As The Running Backs Coach

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals made it official on Wednesday announcing Hue Jackson as the team's running backs coach.

Though reports have long surfaced that Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson will become the team's running backs coach following Jim Anderson's retirement, the Cincinnati Bengals finally announced the move on Wednesday. Along with being the team's running backs coach, Jackson will serve as a special assistant to head coach Marvin Lewis.

"This is all about us getting better as an offensive team,” Lewis said today. “It was a tremendous development for our staff that we were able to get Hue last year, and now I’m excited to expand his role.

"People in football know what kind of offensive mind Hue brings to a staff,” Lewis said, “so he’s going to be great with our running backs. And I’m going to take better advantage of his expertise in all aspects of football and coaching, which is very wide. He will help me be more effective in a number of ways."

This will be Jackson's second year on Lewis' staff during his second tenure. Following a stint as the team's wide receivers coach from 2004-2006, Jackson returned in 2011 as the team's assistant defensive backs and special teams coach.
