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.
