Joe Brady is barely over 30 years old, but he is closing in on becoming a head coach in the NFL. In other words, a significant portion of his roster could be older than he is.
The young offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers has been making the interview rounds. On Wednesday, he spoke with the Atlanta Falcons, and on Thursday, the team announced information about the virtual interview.

The Houston Texans and Los Angeles Chargers are also in the process of getting an interview.
Brady doesn’t have a lot of experience. His first crack at being a coordinator was in 2019 at LSU. He may have only been the team’s passing game coordinator, but everyone knows he was instrumental in revolutionizing the Tigers’ offense.
He hasn’t had as much success in his first season as the play-caller for the Panthers, but the team also lost star running back Christian McCaffrey for a majority of the season.
Brady is a brilliant, up-and-coming offensive mind that NFL teams covet right now. We’ll see whether he lands a head coaching gig for 2021 or keeps his eyes on the Carolina offense.
