Die-hard fans of the Cleveland Browns should remember the days of wide receiver Frisman Jackson. An undrafted free agent with the club from 2002-2005, he only compiled 40 catches for 490 yards and 1 touchdown in his playing career but was the type of guy who fans always kind of wanted to see receive more playing time.
Since 2008, Jackson has bounced between several college teams as a wide receivers coach (Western Illinois, Akron, Northern Illinois, and NC State). Now, his NFL dream lives on as at the age of 37, he’s getting his first NFL coaching gig thanks to an old friend.
The Tennessee Titans announced today that they have hired Jackson as their new wide receivers coach. Jackson will now work under offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie, who Jackson once played for as a member of the Browns.
“I was very impressed with Frisman during his visit,” said Titans head coach Mike Mularkey. “He is passionate about coaching, smart and detailed. The system they ran at Temple was similar to our system with their offensive coordinator spending time at the Falcons when Terry (Robiskie) and I were there, which should help his integration into our system and staff. Terry also had experience coaching him as a player in Cleveland, so he knows what is expected from the wide receivers. I am excited to have him join our staff.”
