Now you can really cross Joe Brady off your wish list for Eagles’ offensive coordinator

Now you can really cross Joe Brady off your wish list. 

A few days ago, it looked like the 30-year-old passing game coordinator intended to stay at LSU, so he wouldn’t be available. 

Well, now he’s unavailable for another reason. Brady is heading to Carolina to be the Panthers’ new offensive coordinator under new head coach Matt Rhule. 

Brady is capitalizing the day after the Tigers won the national championship, beating Clemson 42-25 on Monday night. Brady helped coach the Tigers to a national title and helped quarterback Joe Burrow have one of the best college seasons ever. 

Now, Brady is heading back to the NFL to become the league’s youngest offensive coordinator. Brady was a graduate assistant at Penn State as recently as 2016. He spent two years as an assistant with the Saints and just one year with LSU before taking the job with Carolina. 

The Eagles, meanwhile, still have their offensive coordinator job open after firing Mike Groh last week. Brady, one of the hottest names in the sport right now, was a popular choice for that job among Eagles fans. 

In the last several days, the Dolphins hired Chan Gailey as their OC, the Broncos hired Pat Shurmur, the Rams hired Kevin O’Connell, the Bears hired Bill Lazor, the Redskins hired Scott Turner and the Panthers hired Brady. 

We’re still waiting for the Eagles to hire someone, but at the list of possible candidates is getting whittled down.
