Shortly after Hue Jackson was named the Bengals’ running backs coach, one of the first calls he placed was to BenJarvus Green-Ellis. While Green-Ellis was sad to see Jim Anderson retire after 29 seasons, he was happy that Jackson got the position.

“I’m happy for Hue and eager to see what type of things he brings to the run game. I’ve talked to him and am excited about the upcoming season,” Green-Ellis said.

With Anderson as his position coach, Green-Ellis ran for a career-best 1,090 yards and had four 100-yard games in a five-game span. He was also just the third back in team history to post three straight 100-yard games.
