Grambling State introduced Hue Jackson as the program’s 14th head football coach Friday.

Jackson, 56, is a former NFL head coach with the Cleveland Browns (2016-18) and then-Oakland Raiders (2011). He spent the 2021 season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Tennessee State.

This is Jackson’s first head coaching position at the collegiate level. His extensive NCAA and NFL resume includes the offensive coordinator positions at Cal and Southern California, and in the NFL with Washington, Atlanta Falcons, the Raiders and Cincinnati.

He amassed a 3-36-1 record with the Browns, including 0-16 in 2017, and was fired after a 2-5-1 start to the 2018 season. He was 8-8 with the Raiders.

Jackson reportedly signed a four-year contract. He replaces Broderick Fobbs, who was fired on Nov. 15 after compiling a 54-32 record in eight seasons with the Tigers. The Tigers were 4-7 in 2021.
