Bruce Feldman of The Athletic tweeted on Sunday afternoon regarding the opportunities that recently fired Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady could consider the Miami football program he wants to return home. Brady grew up in Pembroke Pines and is an Everglades High School Alum.

Brady lasted less than two years with Carolina after being hired by Matt Ruhle prior to the 2020 season. Prior to his short stint with the Panthers, Brady was the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach with LSU during their record-setting 2019 National Championship season.

Brady ran a prolific LSU offense that set the all-time record with 726 points scored. LSU QB Joe Burrow also set the record with 60 passing touchdowns in a season on his way to the Heisman Trophy and being selected the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Brady would be a perfect replacement for Rhett Lashlee.

First, the Miami football program has to figure out who its coach is going to be. Sports Illustrated reported on Sunday that a noon deadline on Monday was given to Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal to decide if he is going to accept the Miami job that was offered to him this weekend or if he wants to stay with the Ducks.

In the meantime, Manny Diaz is still the Miami head coach. Brady would be perfect with Cristobal or Diaz as the Hurricanes head coach. Diaz and Miami lost Lashlee to SMU as their head coach last week. Cristobal and Oregon lost their offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead this weekend to become the head coach at Akron.

Cristobal reportedly has noon Monday deadline to make decision. dark. Next

No matter where Cristobal is next season he will need a new offensive coordinator. Brady has quickly risen up the ranks as an assistant coach. Before being hired by LSU in 2019, Brady was an offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints in 2017 and 2018. Brady is regarded as one of the brightest young offensive minds in football.
