Carolina Panthers fire offensive coordinator Joe Brady

The Carolina Panthers offense, led by Joe Brady to this day, is one of ten that does not generate at least 20 points per game.

The Carolina Panthers attack (5-7) is inoperative and does not find a short-term solution, so the management considered it pertinent to fire Joe Brady, the team’s offensive coordinator.

After 12 weeks in 2021, the Panthers are the fifth-worst offense in the NFL in yards generated per game at 308.7. They are also one of the ten teams that do not average 20 points per game.

Matt Rhule , the team’s head coach, took advantage of the bye week to consider his options and decided it was best to separate their paths. Joe Brady served as the Panthers’ offensive coordinator since 2020.

“I spoke with Joe this morning and informed him that I decided to make a change . I am very grateful for the time and effort that he put into our establishment in the last year and a half, ”Rhule said in the statement.

Brady began his coaching career at William & Mary College, his alma mater, as linebackers coach and was there in 2013 and 2014. In 2015 and 2016 he was an assistant at Penn State.

In 2017 he got his first break in the NFL as an offensive assistant with the New Orleans Saints. In 2019 he returned to college football, with LSU, as a passing game coordinator and wide receiver coach before coming to Carolina with Matt Rhule.

Interim coordinator

The team announced that Jeff Nixon, assistant offensive coach, will be in charge of coordinating the Panthers’ attack in the last five games of the regular season. Nixon will receive support from the rest of the offensive coaching staff.
