LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady is planning to return to the NFL to become the offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 30-year old Brady is credited with overhauling the LSU offense in one offseason and helped the Tigers compile a 15-0 national championship-winning campaign in his only year with the program.

The former low-level assistant with the New Orleans Saints is expected to take on a much bigger role with new Panthers head coach Matt Rhule’s staff.

LSU reportedly just gave Brady a three-year extension but the the allure of the NFL apparently proved too much to retain him.
