One day last spring, Joe Brady swung by Superior Grill on Highland Road for a quick Mexican food dinner with his good buddy and fellow LSU staffer DJ Mangas.

According to a report by Adam Schefter at ESPN, LSU's passing game coordinator Joe Brady is telling people he's joining the Carolina Panthers' coaching staff. Brady recently signed a three-year extension with LSU, but it left open the option for him to take a job in the National Football League if one was offered.

The Panthers were heavily rumored to be targeting Brady as the top offensive lieutenant for new head coach Matt Rhule, who also came from the college ranks.

Prior to the title game, Brady agreed to a three-year extension with LSU that would have doubled his $410,000 salary. The Athletic is reporting that Brady will be the offensive coordinator in Carolina.

Victoria's chief health officer Brett Sutton said he believed Melbourne's air quality had dropped to "the worst in the world". Several tennis stars have complained about the air quality, leading into the main matches at the Australian Open.

Brady helped transform the Tigers' offense into a high-octane, spread-based attack.

While we don't expect LSU to experience a major drop off next season, it is reasonable to think the Tigers might take a step or two back without Burrow and Brady.

In the meantime, Brady will get the opportunity to build his offense in Carolina under Rhule, who signed a seven-year, $60 million contract this month.
