Hue Jackson is on the hunt for an NFL team that will look beyond his less-than-stellar track record.
For the first time in 32 years, Jackson, who was axed by the Browns last season following an abysmal 3-36-1 record, is planning for a fall with no team to coach. Despite the lack of success, Jackson believes he has what it takes to lead a team.
“Oh, yeah, I mean I think I can,” Jackson said Wednesday on Charlotte’s WFNZ 102.5 FM. “I mean, just because the situation in Cleveland [didn’t work out] doesn’t mean that you can’t coach. There’s a lot of great coaches who came before me that coached there and went on and did great things. Sometimes, the situation is different. I think if people dig in and really take the time to look at the overall situation there, maybe they would understand it more.
“But at the same time, I understand when narratives get put out there, that’s what people know. Hopefully, people will think back to the times when I’ve put myself in that position,” he added. “I had to be doing something right. To go back and be a coordinator again or be a head coach again, I do believe it’s in my future. I’ve just got to go work through the process and see where it goes.”
