Joe Brady is not ready to be an NFL head coach
By Dean Jones
Joe Brady is not ready to be an NFL head coach.
The speculation is building regarding Joe Brady getting a head coaching job as early as next season. His name continues to be touted for possible interviews in the coming weeks, with the NFL granting permission for teams to conduct the process virtually due to current COVID-19 restrictions.
Losing their offensive coordinator would be a real blow for the Carolina Panthers at this stage of a pretty substantial rebuild. Brady came into the league with a big reputation after masterminding LSU’s passing attack during their historic National Championship victory in 2019 and although it’s been a baptism of fire as a play-caller at the next level, there has been more good than bad where he’s concerned.
Teams across the league are always looking for the next great young coach to turnaround their fortunes.
Brady fits into this particular category – at least on the outside looking in – but the simple fact of the matter is that he might not yet be ready to assume command of an NFL franchise.
That might not matter if Brady impresses during his expected interviews in the not too distant future. But it would be a massive gamble to give him yet another promotion with just one year of experience in the brutal world of the NFL under his belt.
