Hue Jackson is an American football coach. He is currently serving as the offensive coordinator for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League.

Hue Jackson joins The Oakland Raiders in 2010 as offensive coordinator. Jackson has 24 years of coaching experience in college and professional football and has been an offensive coordinator at both levels. The 44-year-old Jackson spent the past two seasons as Baltimore’s quarterbacks coach and helped the Ravens advance to the postseason in 2008 and 2009. In 2008, Jackson tutored Joe Flacco, who became the first rookie quarterback to win two playoff games in NFL history as the Ravens advanced to the AFC Championship Game.

In 2007, Jackson was an NFL offensive coordinator for the second time when he served in that capacity for the Atlanta Falcons. He was offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins in 2003 and also held that post twice at the college level — the University of Southern California from 1997-00 and the University of California in 1996. Under Jackson’s tutelage in Cincinnati (2004-06), Chad Ochocinco and T.J. Houshmandzadeh became one of the most prolific wide receiving tandems in NFL history. In 2006, as wide receivers coach for Cincinnati, Ochocinco (1,369 yards) and Houshmandzadeh (1,081) became the first pair of Bengals to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark in a single season. Ochocinco led the NFL in receiving yards and for the fourth consecutive season, he topped the AFC in yardage. It marked the first time a player had led his conference in receiving yards in four straight seasons. He established an NFL record for most receiving yards in consecutive games (450) and a Bengals record for most single-game receiving yards (260 against Chargers). The Pro Bowl receiver also set the top four marks for receiving yards in a single season. Houshmandzadeh peaked in Jackson’s final year when he totaled then-career highs (90 receptions and 1,081 yards). In 2005 under Jackson, the Ochocinco-Houshmandzadeh tandem combined to total 175 receptions for 2,388 yards, while helping the team secure the AFC North title and a playoff berth for the first time in a decade. In Washington, Jackson was promoted to offensive coordinator by Head Coach Steve Spurrier in 2003 and handled team’s offensive play-calling, becoming the only coach to perform that duty other than Spurrier. In 2002, with Jackson as running backs coach, Pro Bowl RB Stephen Davis was on pace for another 1,000-yard rushing season before suffering a season-ending injury. Davis posted a career-high 1,432 rushing yards in 2001. Jackson served as USC’s offensive coordinator from 1997-00, helping to recruit and develop players, including QB Carson Palmer, with whom he was reunited with in Cincinnati (Palmer was the NFL’s No. 1-overall draft pick by the Bengals in 2003). As Cal’s offensive coordinator in 1996, Jackson helped lead the Golden Bears to an Aloha Bowl berth. He coached running backs at Arizona State from 1992-95. He was a minority fellowship coaching intern in training camp with the Washington Redskins in 1995, the Arizona Cardinals in 1992 and the Los Angeles Rams in 1990. From 1990-91, Jackson was running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Cal State Fullerton.

He gained pro coaching experience as a running backs/wide receivers/special teams coach for the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football in the spring. Jackson launched his career as a running backs coach at Pacific from 1987-89. As a quarterback at Pacific from 1985-86, Jackson threw for 2,544 yards and 19 TDs. He also lettered in basketball in 1986 and earned his degree in Physical Education. Jackson is a Los Angeles native who was a star quarterback at Dorsey High School in his hometown, where he also lettered in basketball. Jackson and Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable previously worked together on two college staffs — as assistants at Cal State Fullerton in 1990 and at the University of California in 1996.
