The Carolina Panthers have hired Joe Brady as offensive coordinator.

Brady will work under recently hired head coach Matt Rhule.

Brady, 30, spent one year as LSU's passing coordinator and was largely credited with their offensive surge. Brady recently agreed to an extension with LSU that reportedly would have more than doubled his $410,000 annual earnings.

Brady learned much of what he used at LSU this season working with Sean Payton and Drew Brees.
