How Joe Brady could throw a wrench in LSU football’s plans

Former LSU football passing game coordinator Joe Brady is still having a major impact in Baton Rouge.

LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron made it clear on Tuesday morning during an interview with 104.5 in Baton Rouge that Carolina Panthers quarterbacks coach Jake Peetz and Panthers analyst DJ Mangas are his top two options to lead the Tigers’ offense in 2021.

Peetz and Mangas were recommended to Orgeron by former LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady.

Coach O wants to get back to the offense the Tigers ran in 2019 with Brady and Steve Ensminger.

Consulting Brady is a wise move to make this happen.

But what if Brady could actually throw a wrench in LSU’s plans?

Joe Brady is a candidate to be an NFL head coach

The Houston Texans confirmed on Tuesday (via Twitter) that they are meeting with Brady to interview him for the franchise’s head coaching job.

This likely won’t be the only team that has interest in Brady as a head coach.

It wouldn’t shock me at all if Brady ends up leaving Carolina after just one season to become a head coach. The NFL is trending toward young, innovative, offensive-minded head coaches.

Brady certainly fits that description.

If Brady ends up becoming a head coach in the NFL, it seems incredibly likely he’d want to bring Peetz and Mangas (someone he’s described as his right-hand man) along with him.

I can’t blame him if that ends up being the case. I also wouldn’t blame either coach for going with him (it’s the NFL, after all).

If this ends up happening, it would be back to square one for LSU and their search for a new offensive coordinator.

This is a crazy time of year. We just have to let it all play out. But this is certainly a possibility that fans should keep in mind.
