NFL coach reportedly interested in interviewing LSU's Joe Brady for offensive coordinator position
Turn out the hottest name in college football assistant circles may just be the hottest name in NFL assistant circles, too.
That’s because another NFL coach is reportedly interested in meeting with LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady. This season, Brady became the first non-coordinator to win the Broyles Award, which has been given out annually to the nation’s best assistant coach since the 1996 season.
You may recall, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media recently reported that Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Don Martindale was had been shopping Brady’s name as his potential offensive coordinator hire if he were to land a head coaching job this NFL offseason. While that scenario is unlikely to play out considering only the Cleveland Browns have a head coaching opening at this time, it appears another NFL coach is interested in potentially naming Brady as his offensive coordinator.
According to FootballScoop, recently-hired Carolina coach Matt Rhule is “interested in speaking” to Brady regarding his interest in becoming the Panthers new offensive coordinator. The site is also reporting that Rhule is prepared to wait until after LSU’s appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game to meet with Brady.
Take that for what it’s worth but it certainly appears that Brady will have several suitors once LSU’s season comes to an end.
