LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has constantly stated, without fail, that passing game coordinator Joe Brady will be in line for a massive new contract that will keep him in Baton Rouge for the foreseeable future.

However, while Brady has reportedly agreed to a new deal, he has not officially put pen to paper as of yet, meaning he could still leave should he get a better opportunity with the NFL. After this historic season at the college level, Brady is one of the hottest names in assistant coaching, and he could go back to the pros as an offensive coordinator.

Brady, who came to LSU after one year with the New Orleans Saints, has turned Joe Burrow from an average quarterback into a record-setting Heisman winner that is currently at the helm of an unbeaten LSU team.

The latest rumblings suggest that Brady could join Matt Rhule's staff with the Carolina Panthers as the team's offensive coordinator. Lions QB coach Sean Ryan is also being considered for the vacancy.

Brady's impact on the LSU offense has been instant and jaw-dropping in how drastic the change has been. With Myles Brennan likely taking over for Burrow next year, the Tigers need Brady back in the fold if they want to duplicate their success this season.
