I told you, when Charlie Casserly speaks, I listen. Not two minutes after I was done talking about Peyton Manning again, I read that Casserly is reporting he is hearing that the Arizona Cardinals are going to interview former Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson for their open quarterbacks coach position. Interesting move if it happens.
The question I would ask is why would Jackson be interested in moving into a position coach so quickly? I think he did an admirable job as head coach for the Raiders this season and believe he would be more suited for a coordinator position somewhere. Now, of course there aren’t many of those available right now, but that being said, I would have to think any move to a position coach for Jackson would be extremely temporary.
What is interesting here though is Jackson is a former offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins and has also been linked to the Indianapolis Colts and is also a former quarterbacks coach for the Baltimore Ravens and the University of Southern California. So, it could be a good fit, I’m just not sure I would go in that direction if I were the Cardinals. I would hope he would be here for awhile if both sides were to come to a hiring agreement.
