Panthers make Joe Brady the youngest offensive coordinator in NFL

NFL Carolina

The Carolina Panthers have hired former LSU quarterback coach Joe Brady as an offensive coordinator.

Brady, who is 30 years old, becomes the youngest offensive coordinator in the NFL. Brady just wrapped one of the most successful campaigns in college football history, helping lead LSU to an undefeated season and a national championship.

In 2017 and 2018, Brady was an offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints. He then joined the LSU Tigers as their passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach.

He was named this year the winner for the Broyles Award. The Broyles Award is an annual award given to the best assistant coach in college football.

In 2019, LSU led the SEC in scoring offense, total offense, passing offense and first downs. This year’s LSU offense was the first in the history of the SEC to feature a 4,000-yard passer (Joe Burrow), a 1,000-yard rusher (Clyde Edwards-Helaire), and two 1,000-yard receivers (Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson).
