News broke on Friday that LSU football could possibly be losing wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Cortez Hankton.

The Los Angeles Rams, fresh off a win in Super Bowl LVI, are in need of an offensive coordinator with Kevin O’Connell being named the Minnesota Vikings head coach this week (replacing Mike Zimmer).

Los Angeles has requested permission to interview Hankton for their vacant offensive coordinator position.

If the Rams want Hankton, he’d be foolish not to leave.

Hankton doesn’t have any NFL coaching experience, but he is a former NFL player. He also has a connection to Rams head coach Sean McVay. Hankton and McVay were together with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008 (Hankton was a player and McVay was an offensive assistant).

Losing Cortez Hankton could provide a big opportunity for LSU football

If the Tigers lose Hankton to the Rams, it could give LSU head coach Brian Kelly a huge opportunity.

Former LSU wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Joe Brady is currently with the Buffalo Bills as their quarterbacks coach.

Kelly could go after Brady and try to lure him back to Baton Rouge. Maybe as a wide receivers coach/co-offensive coordinator with Mike Denbrock.

Not only could LSU recreate some magic from 2019, but this move would also give the Tigers some insurance if Denbrock doesn’t work out as an offensive coordinator in the SEC (remember, Kelly once stripped Denbrock of his playcalling duties at Notre Dame).

When is LSU's spring football game?. dark. Next

I’d offer Brady whatever it takes compensation-wise to make this move happen. He needs to rehab his image after getting fired from the Carolina Panthers this past season anyway. This would be the perfect situation for Brady and for LSU.
