Orgeron: LSU a ‘step ahead’ in retention plan for Joe Brady

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU coach Ed Orgeron says he’s a “step ahead” of potential suitors trying to lure passing game coordinator and Broyles Award finalist Joe Brady away from the No. 1 Tigers.

Brady is in his first season with LSU after spending two seasons as a low-level offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints.

On Monday, Brady was announced as one of five finalists for the Broyles Award presented to the nation’s top college assistant.

Orgeron says LSU has “a plan in place” to retain Brady and is “in good shape,” but did not elaborate.

Brady was brought in to help LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger install a spread offense that includes run-pass option plays. His hiring has coincided with the rise of the most prolific offense in program history and the transformation of quarterback Joe Burrow into a leading Heisman Trophy candidate.
