Bengals name Hue Jackson as RBs coach

  •  

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals have moved assistant coach Hue Jackson into a new role, giving him the job of replacing the retired Jim Anderson as running backs coach.

Jackson was an assistant defensive backs coach last season. The Bengals hired Adam Zimmer - son of defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer - to fill that role on Tuesday.

Jackson was Oakland's head coach in 2011, but was fired after an 8-8 finish. The Raiders traded with the Bengals for quarterback Carson Palmer during that season, but failed to make the playoffs.

He was rehired as an assistant in Cincinnati, where he also was the wide receivers coach from 2004-06.
