The Carolina Panthers would be wise to inquire about the offense coordinator.
Could a member of the LSU Tigers be headed to Charlotte? That is the question as new Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule fills out the rest of his coaching staff. A report has come out that the head coach is interested in adding LSU offensive coordinator Joe Brady to his coaching staff.
Brady, as many of you may know, is in the midst of a tremendous season with LSU. He and the rest of the LSU Tigers are set to face the Clemson Tigers in the national championship game on Monday night. Brady has been a huge part of LSU’s success. He is known for a spread offense with the West Coast and run-pass option schemes. As noted in a report from The Advocate, he learned those as an offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints and as a graduate assistant at Penn State.

I certainly would not mind a Brady hire. He has proven to be successful as an offensive coordinator, and it would be another outside the-box addition. With Matt Rhule coming from the college ranks, Brady would be no stranger in that regard. Given how Brady can bring multiple offensive looks to the table, I would view that as a tremendous asset for the Carolina Panthers. Run-pass option plays would be a tremendous asset in this offense, especially if Cam Newton comes back. A spread offense would work great with the weapons the Panthers have at wide receiver.
I know Brady is the attractive name at the moment in terms of assistant coaches. However, I truly think that he could help the Panthers. Particularly if LSU wins on Monday and as LSU quarterback Joe Burrow heads to the draft, this would be a great time for Brady to leave the program. I personally don’t think it’s a question of him being ready. He is definitely ready for the opportunity at the National Football League.
If he is available, the Carolina Panthers should go after him. He would definitely be a great get for the organization. Brady would have a ton of weapons to work with in Carolina, and he would be able to implement his offensive style quite nicely. The Panthers already have a coach from the collegiate ranks, why not add another? It may not be traditional, but that’s what I would love about it. The Panthers have been open to trying new things, and they have proved it in the hiring process to this point.
