Option 2: Joe Brady — Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator

Former LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady is on the verge of becoming a head coach in the NFL (he interviewed for several jobs this past winter).

Serving as LSU’s head coach for a season would make Brady an even more attractive candidate for NFL teams after the 2021 season.

But that doesn’t mean the Tigers should look his way if the program is forced to make a change.

Look, if LSU ends up having to hire a new head coach for the 2021 season, it needs to be someone who has experience keeping a team together during a tumultuous time. Brady, who is still extremely young as a head coach, doesn’t have that experience.

If LSU needs to hire someone, they won’t need an offensive guru — that’s why they have Jake Peetz and DJ Mangas. They’ll just need a good leader. Brady would need to be a CEO-type leader and take a step back from the offense. I don’t think that’s in his nature, which is why I don’t think he’d be a good fit to lead the Tigers in 2021.
