LSU hired passing game coordinator Joe Brady this past offseason and the Tiger’s offense has rewritten the record books since.

LSU’s quarterback Joe Burrow is a Heisman Trophy frontrunner and three receivers are on pace to break the school's touchdown record. With results like that, is natural to expect that Brady would a hot commodity this coming offseason. However, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron said Monday that LSU will “compete” to him.  

“A guy like that is going to have opportunities,” Orgeron said. “But we are going to compete as best as we can to keep him.”

Orgeron said he thought that Brady was enjoying his time at LSU but said any discussion about extending the former Saints assistant “are going to happen after the season.”

“Joe’s worried about breaking down Ole Miss’ coverages,” Oregon said. “He’s not even thinking about that stuff. 

“But after the season, we have coaches that are going to get chances to go elsewhere but the ones that we want to keep. We are going to fight like hell to keep.”

Brady joined the Tigers after serving as offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints for two seasons.

In his first season with LSU, he’s helped offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger transform the Bayou Bengals’ offense. The Tigers have scored the most points in school history through nine games, Joe Burrow has set the school record for touchdown passes and Burrow has the most 300 passing games in a single season.
