The Bengals saw the writing on the wall that offensive coordinator Jay Gruden wouldn’t be with the team for much longer, so they had a plan to make sure that they wouldn’t be without an OC for too long. According to NBC Sports, the Bengals officially named Hue Jackson offensive coordinator pretty much the same time as the Redskins were naming their former OC as their head coach.

“I am very excited to move forward with Hue,” head coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement from the team. “We are blessed to have a staff that allows us to promote from within. It keeps some of the continuity with our offensive team, yet we get new direction and fire from an aggressive and innovative coaching mind. Hue’s expertise in all aspects of football and coaching is very wide.”

Jackson had been a RB coach and assistant to Marvin Lewis in 2013, but this isn’t his first time working with the Bengals. He spent one year as HC of the Raiders in 2011 and has a tenure of running offenses that include the Redskins and Falcons.
