Cardinals search for QB coach could lead to Jackson

Jan 23, 2012, 4:49 PM | Updated: 5:47 pm

The Cardinals relieved QB coach Chris Miller of his duties
a couple weeks ago, and while there appears to be no
favorite to replace him, some big-time names have popped
up as candidates.

It was reported last week that former Cards OC and
Chiefs HC Todd Haley could get the job
, and late
Sunday NFL insider Charley Casserly — he of Peyton
Manning to Arizona fame — provided a new name for who
could be the future Hall of Famer’s next coach.

Jackson led the Raiders to an 8-8 record this season, a
mark that was apparently not good enough to keep his job.

Prior to becoming the head coach at Oakland Jackson was
the team’s offensive coordinator, and before that he was
the QB coach for the Baltimore Ravens, tutoring rookie
Joe Flacco to a solid season and AFC Championship berth.

Of course like Haley, one would think Jackson would have
better options available than joining a team as its QB
coach, as that would be quite a drop after being a head
coach the year before.
