Cincinnati Bengals ‏@Bengals

We have named Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator to replace Jay Gruden, who was hired as Redskins head coach. #Bengals

Hearing this repeatedly from black assistants this morning: nepotism of the Gruden hire shows why so hard for blacks to get jobs.

Maybe if Marvin Lewis has a brother....or Rahim Morris, or Hue Jackson, or Leslie Frazier, or Romeo Crennel, or Lovie Smith...or the assistants can actually STFU and stop crying.

Raheem Morris and Romeo Crennel both don't have a jobs. Hue Jackson was an Offensive Coordinator who went from being the head coach of the Raiders to a Secondary Coach/Assistant Special Teams Coach for Cincinnati. Andy Reid was hired right away off of a 4-12 season. Lovie Smith was fired after a 10-6 season and didn't coach for a year.

They have had jobs in the past and failed is the point. If they have had success and a competant bro in the coaching ranks it would have been nepotism too. They are trying to spin it like there's something racial.

Don't understand. How is the Gruden hiring nepotism? Are Snyder and Gruden related? Allen and Gruden? Oh . . . they,re referring to the previous connection between Allen and Jon Gruden, is it?

Lol wut? Gruden is the reason imo they've had a top 10 offense since he's been there. I honestly feel this is a great hire for the Skins.
Right, though the offense is stacked with some talent. And we are talking about an AFC team which was one and done in all of the three playoff visits in the last three seasons.
Rapoport previously reported that Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer and Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles are two of the finalists. Roman potentially could become that third option.

I think Minnesota is a good fit for Roman. If the Vikings has any one that knows football they would go with Roman. They need an HC/OC for consistency on offense. Roman is more than capable of making Ponder into a good qb. And with APeterson, that offense can be legit --even dangerous.

Do you think that Roman is a good offensive coordinator?

It seems that many people who feel he is not a good offensive coordinator think he will be a good head coach.

I find this rather confusing. Well, at least it confuses me.

He's good at implementing an offense. Good teacher. Play calling during the game --he has his moments. Has conservative tendency. Overall, good qualities for a team like Minny, that has a very good RB and good talents on offense. They need direction and identity. Roman can provide that.

The team relented! RT @RAIDERS: Tony Sparano has signed a 2 year contract to remain the Assistant Head Coach/OL Coach of The Oakland Raiders
I didn't know sparano went to the Raiders. I guess Oakland is the black hole of anonymity.

Citing conversations with people around the league, NFL Network's Albert Breer says the feeling is the Browns' head-coaching job is viewed as "radioactive."

"Tough spot for them," added Breer of the Browns, who were quickly spurned by Patriots OC Josh McDaniels. The Browns have an alleged-criminal owner and kicked Rob Chudzinski aside after one year on the job, also letting outstanding coordinators Ray Horton and Norv Turner leave without a fight. There is no franchise quarterback or running back on the roster. It's not surprising coaches around the league aren't lining up to succeed Chudzinski.
