LSU internal staffer emerging as likely candidate to replace Joe Brady
As reports circulate that Joe Brady is on his way to the NFL from LSU, an internal staffer’s name has been raised as a possible replacement for Brady on the Tigers’ offensive coaching staff.
Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated reported it this way: “There is a somewhat obvious choice on #LSU’s staff for Joe Brady’s replacement: analyst Jorge Munoz, the former Cajuns offensive coordinator who worked closely this season with Joe Burrow and the offense.
Billy Emody of 247Sports similarly reported about Munoz: “Munoz joined Burrow in NYC for the Heisman Trophy presentation, if that tells you anything about what the #LSU star thinks of him.”
Because of Brady’s success, the next offensive assistant, especially as a play caller, will be especially closely watched.
Munoz previously coached at Louisiana, where he led several of the Cajuns’ offensive units. He joined LSU in the spring of 2018. A long-time college receivers coach spent the previous 10 years in Lafayette. Among the roles were pass game coordinator/quarterbacks coach (2008-10), receivers coach (2011-15) and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach (2016).
Earlier in his career, Munoz spent three seasons at Eastern Illinois, as receivers coach in 2005, co-offensive coordinator in 2006 and offensive coordinator in 2007.
He’s also worked at Charleston Southern (2004-05), Anderson College (2001-02) Southeast Missouri (1999-00) and his alma mater, Bethany College (1998) in Kansas.
