It was announced earlier this evening that former Oakland Raiders head coach, Hue Jackson is a candidate for the vacant quarterbacks coach spot on the Arizona Cardinals coaching staff. After things went south with former Kansas Cicty Chiefs head coach, Todd Haley, Jackson is the next guy to target. Not much information coming out now but it's been confirmed by Arizona Cardinal sources, and NFL sources that this is true.

XTRA 910 Mike Jurecki revealed Sunday night on FOX10 Sports Night that the Cardinals would interview Jackson this week.
He also said that the team interviewed two other candidates last week (no names were given) that did not get the job.
Jackson has had several offensive coaching jobs in the NFL. He was a running backs coach for the Washington Redskins, a receivers coach for the Cincinnati Bengals and quarterbacks coach for the Baltimore Ravens for Joe Flacco's first two seasons in the league.
He also has coached in the Phoenix are, as he coached running backs and quarterbacks for Arizona State in the 1990s.
