Coach Notes: H. Jackson, Browns, Rams, Allen

Earlier today, we heard that the Browns intend to interview Cincinnati offensive coordinator Hue Jackson on Sunday, less than 24 hours after Jackson’s Bengals face the Steelers in Saturday’s AFC Wild Card game. Jackson won’t be the only coach interviewed by the Browns that day – Cleveland also plans to speak to Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther – and apparently the Browns won’t be the only team that meets with Jackson.

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network (Twitter link), in addition to interviewing with the Browns, Jackson will also meet with the 49ers and Dolphins on Sunday. Given his full schedule, Jackson will be letting those teams come to him, conducting the interviews in Cincinnati, rather than traveling individually to meet with each of them.

Here are a few more of Wednesday’s coaching-related updates:

  • The Browns confirmed today that they’ve completed their head coaching interview with Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Next up for Cleveland? Teryl Austin, Sean McDermott, and Doug Marrone.
  • The Rams are parting ways with several assistants from their coaching staff, announcing today (via Twitter) that they won’t be renewing contracts for offensive assistant Jeff Garcia, running backs coach Ben Sirmans, wide receivers coach Ray Sherman, assistant special teams coach Paul F. Boudreau, and assistant strength and conditioning coach Adam Bailey.
  • Asked during his press conference today if Dennis Allen would keep the Saints‘ defensive coordinator job, Sean Payton wasn’t ready to announce any decisions. However, Payton praised the job Allen did as Rob Ryan‘s replacement and said there’s a good chance he’ll be back (Twitter link via Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune).

    Hue Jackson should pass on all of these jobs unless the Giants offer them their job. Bad management in each place means you’re going uphill from day one.

    Hue had Oakland started in the right direction. He’s a smart coach, I’d like to see him get a shot to build his foundation. Interesting all the coaches that come through Cincinnati….Zimmer, Gruden, now Jackson and Gunther getting looks. Marvin struggles winning the big games but I think it says something to his leadership what he’s done there with all the turnover as well.

    The Raiders should have never fired him. I’d like to see the guy succeed because he got screwed in that situation, which is why I hope he passes on all of these jobs unless he can get the Giant job. He deserves a real shot to do well because he’s a bright coach.
