Brady has since become one of college football’s most talked about assistants, after helping Tigers offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger engineer a historic season from the LSU offense, which included breaking multiple records and a Heisman Trophy for quarterback Joe Burrow.  Rumors have been circulating that another career move was on the horizon for Brady.

At LSU’s  College Football Playoff Media Day Saturday, Brady said he hadn’t been contacted by anyone about other coaching positions, and that he hasn’t given any thought to any other potential job opportunities.  

“For me to think about anything besides winning a National Championship…the thought hasn’t even crossed my mind,” Brady said.  “I’m just excited for Monday and I know after the season, we’ll figure everything out after that.” 

It now appears that former Saints assistant is set to work for their division rival, the Carolina Panthers.  The Panthers are coming off of a 5-11 season and fired longtime coach Ron Rivera.  The franchise recently announced the hiring of former Baylor coach Matt Rhule, who guided the Bears to an appearance in this year Sugar Bowl.
