i'm opening up my mind to this guy.
pretend i matter.
sell me on him.
Well Hue Jackson was a pretty good QB (granted not an NFL QB, but a good HS and college QB).
Jackson played QB, coached RB's at Washington (helped Davis dominate), and WR's at Cincinnati (back when Palmer, Chad Johnson and TJ whosyomomma were dominant). He also coached QB's at Baltimore (really Flacco's best years -- under John Harbaugh).
He's failed as a OC at Washington (under Spurrier) and at Atlanta (Petrino). He was a very good OC at Oakland (6th in scoring, 10th in total offense -- with less weapons than Carolina currently has. He then became the HC at Oakland, started out 7-4 and finished 8-8 just to get fired by the new GM (Oakland hasn't been nearly as good since). Jackson then came back to Cincy to become the assistant to special teams and defensive backs.
NFL head coaches under whom Hue Jackson has served: (from wikipedia)
I don't know a ton about the guy, but he seems like a pretty solid choice to me.
