The Cincinnati Bengals won’t be bringing Hue Jackson back as a member of their staff.
According to Elise James of WLWT, the Jackson is “out” in Cincinnati in any role.

Jackson’s tenure with the Bengals will last a matter of months. The team appears to have settled on a head coach who is quite offensive-minded and likely has his own ideas of how an offense should be run. Jackson likely doesn’t fit that vision.
It’s unclear where the former Cleveland Browns coach will land after this. There are still offensive coordinator positions open around the league, but at the moment, he hasn’t been linked to any of them. He has enough experience to land somewhere, but it’s safe to say he’s not as well-regarded as he once was.
