Hue Jackson becomes a free agent

Hue Jackson becomes a free agent

Hue Jackson is a football “lifer” who made his latest job transition, exploring free agency following a six year stint with the Cincinnati Bengals. This led to his new role as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. This will be his second head coaching job, having worked in the same top role for the Oakland Raiders in 2011. His experience is amazing, as he’s been a coach since 1987, and made his way to coaching in the NFL starting in 2001. He has been an offensive coordinator, quarterback coach, running backs coach, special teams coach, and special assistant.

The Cleveland Browns are banking on Jackson’s wide range of experience to help pull them out of yet another classically underperforming season. One interesting bit of news that comes from this is the free agency of many players from the Bengals, where Jackson spent his last six years. There are already rumors that he will look to target those players as he looks to shape the on-field product in his image, tailored to his specific strategies.

No doubt, it will be a difficult job for Jackson, as the Browns finished the 2015 season with a poor 3-13 record. As a part of their revamping strategy, the Browns hired Paul DePodesta to be their “Chief Strategy Officer”; DePodesta is best known for his work in baseball, using strategies to shape the Athletics and Mets to successful seasons. Long suffering fans in Cleveland certainly hope this “Moneyball” approach combined with Hue Jackson’s on-field experience can help shape a contender.
