Former Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson is expected to be named offensive coordinator on Eddie George’s staff at Tennessee State, per a report from the Tennessean.
George was named coach at Tennessee State earlier this week, and there had already been whispers Jackson would join him. George, a former star running back for the Titans, has also brought in former Titans coach Jeff Fischer to serve as a senior advisor to the FBS program.
George has never been a coach at any level, so it only makes sense for him to bring in some veterans to help guide the program — and him.
Jackson, 55, was coach of the Oakland Raiders in 2011, and then the Browns from 2016-18. He finished 8-8 with the Raiders, and went a miserable 3-36-1 with the Browns.
Along with his time in the NFL as a head coach and offensive coordinator, Jackson spent time as an assistant in the college game, at California, USC and Cal State Fullerton.
Tennessee State is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference and just wrapped up a spring season, finishing 2-5.
