5 coaches that could join Sean Payton with Denver Broncos
Potential Fit: Offensive Pass Game Coordinator/QBs Coach, Offensive Coordinator
Joe Brady has bounced all over the place over the last few years. His name reached the national stage when he was the pass game coordinator and wide receivers for Joe Burrow, Ed Orgeron, and the LSU Tigers on their way to a national title. He then served as the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers, and his tenure did not go as hoped. He served last year as the quarterbacks coach for Josh Allen and the Bills, following the promotion of Ken Dorsey to offensive coordinator.
Brady broke into the NFL as an offensive assistant for the New Orleans Saints in 2017. He served under that title for two seasons before heading off to the college scene. In early 2019, Payton admitted that he told Brady that going to LSU would be a “mistake”, but that proved to springboard his career.
Brady has lost some of the shine off his name in recent years, but being one of the lieutenants to Sean Payton in Denver could help put his career back on track.
3 things we learned from Sean Payton’s introductory presser
The Denver Broncos introduced their 20th head coach in franchise history Monday afternoon as Sean Payton talked for the first time in Dove Valley.
Brady’s track record with quarterbacks could also prove vital, as the Broncos look to resurrect the career of Russell Wilson. Brady has worked on offenses with Drew Brees, worked closely with Joe Burrow, and just spent all of 2022 as the quarterbacks coach for Josh Allen. To put it lightly, Brady has the background to work with quarterbacks, and he could prove to be a pivotal voice in the plan for Russell Wilson.
