Jackson spent part of the 2018 season as a special assistant to then-head coach Marvin Lewis with the Cincinnati Bengals - Jackson's most recent coaching job - and was considered a candidate to replace Lewis as head coach before the Bengals hired Zac Taylor.

Last month, Jackson said in a radio interview with The Really Big Show on ESPN 850 that "there's no doubt" he was "lied to by ownership and leadership" of the Cleveland Browns while he was their head coach, adding that he received a contract extension in the middle of an 0-16 season in 2017 that the team didn't announce.
