Chicago fans, forget our Hue Jackson discussion from this morning. ESPN’s Michael Smith reports Jackson won’t interview for the Bears’ offensive coordinator job because he will accept a similar position with Oakland.

To this point, that leaves the Bears 0-for-5 on candidates they are known to have either sought out or have interviewed for the job. A quick summary:

Jeremy Bates
Previous position: USC offensive coordinator
Decision: Canceled interview to become Seattle’s offensive coordinator

Tom Clements
Previous position: Green Bay quarterbacks coach
Decision: Packers denied permission to interview

Ken Zampese
Previous position: Cincinnati quarterbacks coach
Decision: Bengals closed hiring window

Rob Chudzinski
Previous position: San Diego assistant head coach/tight ends
Decision: Unclear, but apparently will remain with Chargers

Hue Jackson
Previous position: Baltimore quarterbacks coach
Decision: Will become Oakland’s offensive coordinator
