Former LSU assistant set to interview for Atlanta Falcons head coaching job

Joe Brady is getting a chance to interview for the Atlanta Falcons head coaching position.

According to Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports, the Falcons requested to interview the Bills offensive coordinator.

LSU fans are familiar with Brady from his time at LSU, where he served as the passing game coordinator during LSU’s national title run in 2019. Brady also helped coach a receivers group that featured Ja'Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson and Terrace Marshall.

Brady left LSU following the 2019 season for the offensive coordinator position with the Carolina Panthers but was let go in 2021. He began 2023 as the Bills’ QB coach but was promoted to the OC role after Ken Dorsey was fired.

Brady has some tough competition for the Falcons job given the organization’s interest in Bill Belichick and Jim Harbaugh, two of the biggest names on the market.

For now, Brady will continue to call plays for the Bills as they look to finally breakthrough and make a Super Bowl with Josh Allen.
