He was the Bengals' offensive coordinator before becoming Browns head coach, but Bengals offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has done a good job calling plays this season.

Jackson was sacked as head coach of the Browns earlier this season, ending an ignominious tenure that saw the team compile a record of 3-36-1 in Jackson's 40 games in charge.

Jackson has already had two separate stints as a Bengals' assistant. Lewis chose to take over the defense, but Jackson could help on that end.

"I hadn't had to do that a lot", Lewis said.

In all seriousness, Cincinnati did fire defensive coordinator Teryl Austin this week after giving up more 50 points to the New Orleans Saints.

US hate crimes surge in Trump's first year
More than half of such crimes, about 3 of 5, targeted a person's race or ethnicity, while about 1 of 5 targeted their religion. However, the number of agencies reporting data in Kentucky only changed slightly from 405 in 2016 and to 409 in 2017.

"We had to make a change", Lewis said. Jackson's official title is special assistant to the head coach.

It's no secret that Jackson and Lewis have a fondness for each other that dates back many years.

The Browns fired Jackson, who has a long coaching history with Lewis in Cincinnati, on October 29. But a Bengals source said early after the firing that bringing Jackson back wasn't on the immediate radar, and Lewis declined to answer any questions in a news conference shortly after the move was announced. He was running the show in Cleveland for two and a half seasons, and in that time, the Browns compiled a record of just 3-36-1.

Lewis found Jackson a place on the staff after Jackson was sacked after just one season in Oakland in 2011, and Jackson came close to being head-coach-in-waiting in Cincinnati.

After that, Cincinnati hosts the Browns.
