Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator: Hue Jackson to be interviewed

Justin Sullivan

Already looking for a replacement, the Panthers will interview Hue Jackson.

The Carolina Panthers have wasted no time looking for a new offensive coordinator, requesting an interview with Cincinnati Bengals secondary coach, and assistant special teams coach Hue Jackson.

Reported by NFL Network's Albert Breer, via Twitter -- Jackson has a long-standing history of offensive success, despite making the unexpected switch to the defensive side of the ball in 2012. Boasting ten years of NFL experience, and almost 25 years of overall coaching experience, Hue Jackson has held a variety of position coaching roles, and is a three-time NFL offensive coordinator.

In his last stop in a true OC role, Jackson made an immediate impact in Oakland. The 2010 Raiders finished with 10th in total yards, and sixth in scoring -- despite playing Jason Campbell and Bruce Gradkowski at quarterback. He's known for his belief in power running, and a knack for working with a variety of different quarterbacks.

Hue Jackson would offer an excellent replacement for Rob Chudzinski, all while adding a wealth of experience to the organization -- this would be a very good hire. The New York Jets have also expressed interest.
