Hue Jackson to be named Grambling State Tigers’ new head coach

Hue Jackson, Tennessee State offensive coordinator, leads the group during the Black College Football Hall of Fame Classic against Grambling State at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

Former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator and assistant coach Hue Jackson, who just completed his first season as Tennessee State's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, is expected to be named the Grambling State Tigers' new head coach, according to multiple reports Wednesday night.

Jackson has experience as a National Football League head coach but not at the college level.

Grambling State fired Broderick Fobbs last month after eight seasons as head coach. The Tigers finished the 2021 season 3-7 overall, 2-5 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.

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

Jackson was the Bengals' wide receivers coach from 2004 to 2006. He returned to Cincinnati as an assistant when the Oakland Raiders fired him after one season (2011) as their head coach. He was a Bengals assistant and offensive coordinator before the Cleveland Browns hired him as their head coach in 2016.
