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.
At 30 years old, new Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady is now the youngest coordinator in the NFL.
A rapid rise for the offensive guru who spent the 2017-2018 seasons as an offensive assistant with the Saints.

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