LSU football’s newest hire almost ended up coaching with Joe Brady in the NFL in 2020

LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron said earlier this month that he was going to take his time finding Joe Brady’s replacement.

(Brady, who served as LSU’s passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach, left Baton Rouge in January to become the Carolina Panthers’ new offensive coordinator.)

But it wasn’t long after those comments that Scott Linehan became the Tigers’ new passing game coordinator.

It appears that Coach O saw all he needed to see during his interview process and quickly decided that Linehan was the right guy for LSU.

But Linehan almost wasn’t available.
