CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – The Panthers are hoping Joe Brady can bolster their sagging offense like he did at LSU. Carolina officially announced the hiring Thursday of the LSU passing game coordinator as its offensive coordinator. The 30-year-old Brady helped transform LSU into a powerhouse using a spread attack on offense in his only season at the school. The Tigers rolled through a 15-0 season and won the national championship. Brady won the Broyles Award given annually to the top assistant coach in college football. He becomes the NFL’s youngest active offensive coordinator.
