Las Vegas Raiders: 5 head coaching candidates for 2022
No. 4: Joe Brady
Joe Brady is one of the best young offensive minds in the game of football today. He has quickly risen the coaching ladder, most notably for his time at LSU during the 2019 season.
Brady has spent time learning from offensive genius Sean Payton, as he had a two-year stint with the New Orleans Saints as an offensive assistant coach from 2017-2019. From there, he went on to LSU, holding the title of “passing game coordinator.”
At LSU, Brady was the mastermind behind one of the most prolific offenses in NCAA football history, as the Tigers went on to win the National Championship. Brady was subsequently the recipient of the Broyles Award, which recognizes the top assistant coach during a specific college football season.
Since leaving LSU after just one season, Brady has played a large role in the resurgence of Sam Darnold with the Carolina Panthers, as the team’s offensive coordinator. While Brady’s name was thrown around a little bit during the 2021 NFL offseason for head coaching jobs, it seemed it was at least a year early for the young coach.
This offseason, though, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Mark Davis interview Brady and give him real consideration for the job.
