Bengals assistant Hue Jackson interviewed with the Carolina Panthers on Monday for their open offensive coordinator job, NFL.com's Albert Breer reported via Twitter.

The Panthers also interviewd Pat Shurmur on Monday for the same job, according to Breer.

Breer reported Friday that Carolina requested permission from the Bengals to speak to Jackson.

He also Tweeted this earlier:

Jackson would also be a frontrunner for the OC job in Cincinnati if Jay Gruden were to get a head coaching job somewhere.

The New York Jets reportedly have also expressed interest in Jackson. Joe Reedy reported Jan. 6 that Jackson "could receive consideration from teams looking for an offensive coordinator." One team to keep an eye on, Reedy said, is the Jets, as Jackson and Rex Ryan worked together in Baltimore.
