Joe Brady told reporters Saturday that he'll be a Tiger as long as LSU is willing to have him. Still, rumors circle that this could be the offensive coordinator's last game with LSU.
LSU has worked out an extension with Joe Brady, but it hasn’t been signed. The fear is they can always continue to bid. But Brady, who was tied to #Ravens DC Wink Martindale’s candidacy as well, may simply want to be in the NFL. https://t.co/b9MYEjQLKU— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 11, 2020
Brady has been hailed as the mastermind of LSU's new look passing game. This year the Tigers scored 15 points more per-game, and averaged 150 yards more per-game too.
Brady was hired this past offseason, leaving an assistant coaching job with the New Orleans Saints. In one season, Brady has gone from average Joe, to one of the hottest names in college coaching.
"In my mind I'm still a graduate assistant, an offensive assistant. What I mean by that is my work ethic, none of that changes," he said Saturday during the College Football National Championship's media day. "I go into each game with the same confidence I've had. The way I work, the way I approach each game, the why I treat the players, nothing has changed. My life hasn't changed. I still go to work just as I did as an offensive assistant."
Sean Payton admitted earlier this month that he told Brady he was making a mistake. Joe said he didn't remember that, only the support he revived from Payton and the Saints' organization.
