10:30 PM ET 01.31 | After the retiring of running backs coach Jim Anderson, Bengals coach Hue Jackson is ready to take over the reins from the longest tenured coach in team history. Jackson is an invaluable asset to this team -- having an assistant coach with head coaching experience always is. Hue Jackson served as head coach of the Oakland Raiders during the 2011 season, leading them to a respectable 8-8 record. After the season, new Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie fired Hue, giving him the opportunity for his second stint with the Bengals. From 2004-2006, Hue Jackson spent his time on the sidelines for the Cincinnati Bengals as the wide receivers coach. During that time, Jackson coached a very skilled group of receivers in Chad Johnson, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, and Chris Henry who experienced great success on the field. In 2006, Johnson and Houshmandzadeh became the first pair of Bengals to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark in a single season. Chad Johnson, who referred to Jackson as his mentor and father figure in his autobiography, went to the Pro Bowl each year while Jackson was with the Bengals.
