BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It’s official! LSU has a new passing game coordinator and the coach didn’t have to travel far to get to Baton Rouge.
Joe Brady comes to LSU from the New Orleans Saints coaching staff, where he spent the last two years as an offensive assistant.
“Joe is energetic and innovative,” head coach Ed Orgeron said in a statement. “He spent the past two seasons working with Sean Payton at the New Orleans Saints and he brings to our staff extensive knowledge of the RPO game. He’s an outstanding coach that will be a tremendous asset to our football team.
”In addition to serving as our passing game coordinator, he will work alongside Mickey (Joseph) in coaching our talented group of wide receivers.”
Brady replaces the popular Jerry Sullivan, who retired at the end of the season.
While Brady was with the New Orleans, the Saints offense finished No. 2 in total offense in 2017 and No. 8 in 2018.
He also spent time as an assistant at Penn State and William & Mary, where he played wide receiver from 2009-2012 .
