Panthers’ Joe Brady interviews for Eagles’ head coaching vacancy
On Wednesday, another name emerged in the Eagles' hunt to identify Doug Pederson's successor.
NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported that Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady has interviewed for the Eagles' head coaching vacancy.
Brady has been a hot commodity in the early stages of the interview process.
The 31-year-old began his coaching career as a linebackers coach at William & Mary (2013-14) and eventually made the jump to the professional ranks as an offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints (2017-18) before rising to prominence as a passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach at LSU in 2019.
Brady, of course, earned national recognition for his role in igniting the explosive Tigers' aerial attack that ultimately served as the driving force behind LSU's National Championship. Quarterback Joe Burrow's prolific season earned him the designation of being the consensus top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Following his success in Baton Rouge, Brady returned to the NFL as an intriguing addition to an upstart Panthers team, joining newly-appointed head coach Matt Rhule's staff as an offensive coordinator.
The fresh-faced offensive mind is well-versed in the passing game and seemingly aligns with team owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman's vision. While Brady undoubtedly has many suitors, his name bears watching in the elaborate, ongoing search.
