Hue Jackson

Jackson is another current coordinator, with past head coaching experience. He only got one year as the man in charge of the Raiders, leading them to an 8-8 record (after starting the season 7-4) in 2011.

Jackson currently has the Bengals offense rolling (rated 6th overall, 7th in passing and 11th in rushing attack).

He will get an opportunity as a head coach sooner rather than later, and the Lions would be wise to take a long look at Jackson.
