BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU coach Ed Orgeron said he's a "step ahead" of potential suitors trying to lure passing game coordinator and Broyles Award finalist Joe Brady away from the No. 2 Tigers.
Brady is in his first season with LSU after spending two seasons as a low-level offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints.
On Monday, Brady was announced as one of five finalists for the Broyles Award, which is presented to the nation's top college assistant.
Orgeron said LSU has "a plan in place" to retain Brady and is "in good shape," but did not elaborate.
