Bengals introduce Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator

Updated: Friday, January 10 2014, 01:48 PM EST
CINCINNATI (Mike Berk) -- Friday the Bengals would've boarded the buses and headed off to Boston for the divisional round of the playoffs. The Chargers interrupted those plans and the Bengals have had some overhaul since.

Gone is Jay Gruden, who takes the head job in Washington. And long-time NFL vet Hue Jackson takes his place as offensive coordinator.  Jackson served in this role before in three other cities but probably never inherited an offense with so many tools with which to work.  It's his job to keep it running like the fairly well-oiled machine it's been the past three years.

"I know you find the niche that everybody does well and you give them an opportunity to showcase their talents and abilities. At the end of the day, the guys understand what we're trying to do-- which is score touchdowns. The fun part will be all of them will want the ball to try to score touchdowns. And what we're going to try to do, again you'll hear me say it a lot, create an environment for these guys to be great and the guys who are great are going to touch the ball every chance they can touch it."

"Hue's going to bring that energy," said Head Coach Marvin Lewis. "He brought it to us as a running back coach, he brought it to us on defense. He's going to bring that energy to the offensive football team. Now it's his charge."

Coach Lewis also introduced Kyle Caskey as the new running backs coach to replace Jackson.  Kyle was also promoted from within. Bengals introduce Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator
