Could Hue Jackson wind up working for every AFC North team? The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested enough in making that happen that they interviewed Jackson for their offensive coordinator vacancy this week, per a report from ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Jackson was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns from 2016 through the middle of the 2018 season, when he was fired after winning just three times in 41 games. His 2017 Browns are one of two teams to ever finish 0-16 in an NFL season.

Jackson has had three separate stints with the Cincinnati Bengals, including serving on their offensive staff during the 2018 season after being fired by the Browns. The 55-year-old Jackson was also the QB coach for the Baltimore Ravens in 2008-2009.

The Steelers parted ways with coordinator Randy Fichtner after losing to the Browns in the wild-card round earlier this month. Jackson is among several candidates to interview for the vacancy.
