Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson had a busy weekend.
His team lost to the Steelers on Saturday night and he spent Sunday interviewing with the 49ers and Browns about their head coaching vacancies amid reports that the 49ers favor Jackson over other candidates for the job. No deal has been signed yet, however, and Jackson may have at least one more option to pursue.
There was talk over the weekend that the Giants were interested in talking to Jackson about becoming their next head coach and Adam Schefter and Josina Anderson of ESPN each reported Monday that they have formally requested an interview. Nothing appears to be scheduled and the interview might not happen should things move into a more serious direction with one of the teams that have already spoken to Jackson.
It’s unclear if Jackson would pass on speaking to the Giants if an offer comes his way before an interview is scheduled, but all of the interest in his services likely bodes well for his chances of landing a second NFL head coaching job.
