Veterans of Cincinnati: Dexter Jackson becomes a coach

During his three seasons in Cincinnati, Jackson posted three interceptions, 1.5 quarterback sacks, a forced fumble and passes defensed. His opposing quarterback rating was 97.8 and 105.1 in 2007 and 2008 respectively.

Former Cincinnati Bengals safety Dexter Jackson will be known for being an MVP in Super Bowl XXXVII, posting two interceptions during Tampa Bay's win over the Oakland Raiders. He became only the third defensive back to win the award in Super Bowl history. Jackson would spend three seasons with the Bengals, from 2006-08, before finishing his professional career with the UFL's Florida Tuskers.

After a stint on radio, Jackson has finally returned to football as a coach, at the urging of former defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan.

"They loved the way I was able to relay information to guys in the NFL and they asked me several times, ‘Hey, did you ever think about coaching?’" Jackson said via the Montgomery Advertiser. "I told them it’s been on my mind, but at the time, I had just had my kids and I wanted to spend time with my kids first. Now, my kids are grown up enough but I’ve always stayed around football.

Jackson was hired by Alabama State to become the team's newest safeties coach this week.

During his three seasons in Cincinnati, Jackson posted three interceptions, 1.5 quarterback sacks, a forced fumble and passes defensed. His opposing quarterback rating was 97.8 and 105.1 in 2007 and 2008 respectively.
