Niners bringing in Jackson to interview for coaching job

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson will interview Wednesday for the San Francisco 49ers' head-coaching job, according to a team source.

Jackson's interview would put the 49ers in compliance with the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview a minority candidate before appointing a head coach. Jackson, who guided the Raiders' young offense to a dramatic improvement, also is under consideration to replace Tom Cable in Oakland.

The 49ers, who promoted Trent Baalke to general manager Tuesday night, also have made a concerted pitch to land Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, who is on the radar of the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos, too.
