Hue reunion: Browns try to beat former head coach, Bengals

Hue Jackson back in Cincinnati, helping to run defense

CINCINNATI (AP) — Hue Jackson has landed back in Cincinnati, where he'll help head coach Marvin Lewis try to resurrect the Bengals' historically bad defense.

The Bengals hired Jackson as a special assistant on Tuesday, a day after Cincinnati fired its defensive coordinator and put Lewis in charge of running the unit. Lewis says Jackson will help him prepare the defense each week and he'll be on the field during games helping him with decisions.

It's Jackson's third stint with the Bengals. He was their offensive coordinator before the Browns hired him as head coach after the 2015 season. Jackson was fired last month after winning only three games in Cleveland.

The Bengals (5-4) are on pace to give up the most yards in NFL history.
