Hue Jackson wasn’t out of coaching for long. The fired Cleveland Browns head coach has landed a new job in the AFC North, the league announced this morning.
The Cincinnati Bengals have hired Jackson, who will serve as a special assistant to head coach Marvin Lewis.
The Bengals made a major coaching change earlier this week, firing their defensive coordinator following the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The former Cleveland Browns head coach is joining the Cincinnati Bengals’ coaching staff as special assistant to the head coach, effective immediately, the team announced Tuesday.
“I have a great comfort level with Hue and his ability to assist me with the day-to-day responsibilities on defense, including analyzing our opponents and helping me on game days with the players and defensive coaches,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said.
Jackson was fired by the Browns less than two weeks ago after compiling a 3-36-1 record over two-plus seasons with the team.
Here’s how one Browns player reacted to the news:
