Flying under the radar, the Jets have completed an interview with Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady. This is the fourth candidate the team interviewed alongside Eric Bieniemy, Marvin Lewis, and Robert Saleh.
Joe Brady is one of the more popular candidates on the rise. He made his bed as the passing game coordinator at LSU in 2019. As a matter of fact, Brady helped make Joe Burrow a star at LSU. As a result, Burrow became the first overall pick selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Brady won the Broyles Award. After LSU won the National Championship, he emerged as a leading candidate for offensive coordinator vacancies. Brady agreed to a three-year extension at LSU but eventually left to join the Panthers with Matt Rhule.
Under Brady’s and Rhule’s tutelage, the Panthers’ offense ranked 19th in the NFL. That doesn’t overshadow the talent they improved.
The Panthers became the fifth team in the Super Bowl era to have four players record 1,000+ scrimmage yards in a season.
