Michael Silver of Sports Illustrated is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers, along with the Miami Dolphins, have requested to interview Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.
To follow up on the @JeffDarlington report: The 49ers, like the Dolphins, have also put in a request with Bengals to interview Hue Jackson— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) January 5, 2016
Jackson spent 2011 as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders before joining the Bengals as their secondary coach in 2012. He became the running backs coach in 2013 and then the offensive coordinator in 2014.
The Bengals play the Steelers in a wild card game on Saturday night.
If the Niners can't land Sean Payton, my sense is Bengals OC Hue Jackson is the name to watch. Worked with GM Trent Baalke in Washington.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 4, 2016
