Will Tom Herman, Texas attempt to poach top LSU assistant?
After a rough 7-5 season, Tom Herman is cleaning house at Texas.
The Longhorns head coach has already fired both his offensive and defensive coordinators, among other staff changes. Texas has been a major disappointment this season after defeating Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. The Horns looked like it would become a legitimate College Football Playoff contender.
Now, Herman is overhauling his staff in an attempt to improve his program. According to WatchStadium’s Brett McMurphy, Texas is targeting LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady for the offensive coordinator position. Herman saw firsthand the impact that Brady has had at LSU this year, as Joe Burrow and LSU’s passing game torched the Texas defense for 471 yards and four touchdowns through the air.

LSU knew this would be coming and that Brady would be a top candidate on the coaching carousel; so, it has already engaged discussions with Brady to keep him at LSU and pay him a lot of money to do so.
The Tigers are reportedly willing to pay Brady NFL coordinator market value of around $1.5 million. Brady is currently making $410,000.
