Ross Dellinger of SI.com reports that LSU pass game coordinator Joe Brady has agreed to a new contract with the school through a memorandum of agreement.
According to Dellinger, the parameters of the agreement “remain in flux” but Brady’s deal with LSU is believed to be a three-year contract that will more than double his current $410,000 salary.
Dellinger does, however, add that the deal protects LSU from losing him to college assistant jobs, but he will have the flexibility to take either a college head coaching job or depart for the NFL.
This deal may not be officially in place until a later date.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Panthers new HC Matt Rhule is considering LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady for their offensive coordinator vacancy.
According to Rapoport, Rhule has other options, but Brady is a “strong” one.
LSU has reportedly worked out an extension for Brady, but Rapoport says he has yet to officially sign it. Rapoport notes that Brady may prefer to be a coordinator in the NFL.
Scott Roussel of FootballScoop first reported that Rhule was interested in speaking with Brady about their offensive coordinator position.
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.
We’ll have more regarding the Panthers as the news is available.
