LSU has had “preliminary conversations” about retaining first-year passing game coordinator Joe Brady, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron said Sunday. 

“We’re going to fight to keep him here as much as we can and we’ve had some preliminary conversations with him, but everything seems positive right now,” Orgeron told reporters.

LSU added Brady, a former New Orleans Saints assistant, to its staff prior to the 2019 season; Brady  helped the Tigers transition to a spread offense. 

Since the shift, LSU has become one of the most productive offenses in SEC history.

The Tigers scored at least 40 points in 10 games breaking the program's 2011 record of nine games topping the mark.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow also had the best passing season in SEC history as his 4,366 passing yards eclipsed Tim Couch’s 1998 season total of 4,275 at Kentucky.  Burrow also tied the SEC record for passing touchdowns in a season with his 44 scoring tosses.  He's also on pace to have the most accurate season in college football history as his current completion percentage of 78.3 percent would top Colt McCoy's  record 76.7 completion percentage at Texas in 2008.
