The New York Jets have completed an interview with up-and-comer Joe Brady, who’s currently the Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator.

On Saturday, just prior to the Buffalo Bills’ wild-card win over the Indianapolis Colts, the New York Jets announced that they had completed an interview with the up-and-coming Joe Brady.

Brady, 31, led the Carolina Panthers as their offensive coordinator this past season. He quickly made the coordinator leap from LSU to the pros after his outstanding work with Joe Burrow in 2019.

Two Panther wide receivers eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark this past season. Former Jet Robby Anderson went for 1,096 on 95 receptions and D.J. Moore collected 1,193 on 66 grabs. Even backup running back Mike Davis filled in admirably after stud Christian McCaffrey went down via injury.

His coaching career began back in 2013 as William & Mary’s linebackers coach. He then hopped on with Penn State for two years as a graduate assistant from 2015 to 2016. Then, he worked under Sean Payton in New Orleans for two seasons as an offensive assistant before returning to college (LSU) for that magical 2019 campaign.


At his ripe age, Brady would be the youngest head coach in the NFL and among the youngest head coaches in the NFL’s modern era. (Sean McVay holds the record at 30 years and 11 months.)

Other candidate notes

Elsewhere, the Jets also completed an interview with San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh on Friday. Saleh became the third candidate to interview for the head-coaching position, as Brady was the fourth.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and veteran football coach Marvin Lewis each interviewed this past week. Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus and Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll will interview Sunday. Former Jet and current New Orleans Saints secondary coach Aaron Glenn will get his turn Monday.

Other candidates the Jets officially requested permission to interview include Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith and Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley. They also inquired about Patrick Graham, whom the New York Giants immediately locked up to an extension.
