The LSU coaching staff was infused with another bright, young football mind this offseason when new passing game coordinator Joe Brady accepted a job offer in Baton Rouge.

There is lots of hype around Brady, who is being brought in to revamp a perpetually underwhelming Tigers' air attack.  Tiger fans are optimistic that Brady can bring some pro philosophies he learned while a member of the Saints coaching staff.  Brady served as an offensive assistant for two seasons under Sean Payton and offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael with the Saints.  One thing Brady isn't worried about in his transition to the college game, overloading young quarterbacks with too much to learn.

"I think the issue sometimes you have is you put too much on their plate.  Fortunate for us, the quarterbacks you recruit at LSU, it's an elite school, you're getting NFL quarterbacks," Brady said.  "The system we're running at LSU, we're putting a lot on their plate. The transition to the next level shouldn't be as hard as it could be at other schools."

Brady is the youngest member of the Tigers coaching staff at just 28 years-old.  Watch his conversation with Bobby Hebert, Deuce McAllister, and Kristian Garic in the video below.
