Jourdan Rodrigue reports that LSU passing coordinator Joe Brady has agreed to terms to become the next offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady has told people on Tuesday that he is planning to return to the NFL and join the Panthers’ staff under HC Matt Rhule.
Last week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that Rhule was considering Brady for their offensive coordinator vacancy.
LSU and Brady agreed to a new contract in recent weeks that was believed to be a three-year contract that would have more than double his current $410,000 salary, according to Ross Dellinger of SI.com.
Dellinger did, however, say that the deal allowed Brady to take either a college head coaching job or depart for the NFL.
Brady is one of the game’s up-and-coming young coaches, so it will be interesting to see what he does with the Panthers’ in the coming years, assuming this deal gets done.
Brady, 30, began his coaching career in 2013 at William & Mary as their linebackers coach. He later became a graduate assistant at Penn State and spent two years with the Saints as an offensive assistant.
LSU hired Brady as their passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach last year.
