Ravens QB coach emerges as 49ers’ O.C. candidate

Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson is a candidate for the 49ers’ offensive coordinator position, it has been learned.

Jackson, 43, has been someone the 49ers have discussed from early in the process after coach Mike Singletary fired Mike Martz on Dec. 30. Jackson became available to pursue as a candidate for the job only after the Ravens lost Sunday in the AFC title game.


It is not known whether the 49ers will interview Jackson at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., but one league source suggested it is a strong possibility.


Jackson‘s name has already been linked in recent days to coordinator jobs with the Jets and Bengals.
