BATON ROUGE, La. (KPLC) - The National Championship honeymoon didn’t last long. LSU’s first-year passing game coordinator Joe Brady is headed back to the NFL to become the Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator according to a tweet from ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter.
This report comes just days after LSU and Brady agreed to a new contract, according to a Sports Illustrated report.
According to SI’s Ross Dellenger, Brady was set to reportedly receive a three-year contract that was expected to more than double his current $410,000 salary.
