LSU has found Jerry Sullivan’s replacement for passing game coordinator.

The Tigers have hired New Orleans Saints offensive assistant Joe Brady to replace Sullivan, who announced his retirement earlier this month. The news was first reported by The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman.

Before taking an offensive assistant role in New Orleans, Brady was a graduate assistant with Penn State under James Franklin from 2015-2016. Brady will also work alongside Mickey Joseph in coaching the wide receivers and will be LSU’s youngest member (28) of the coaching staff.

The Saints ranked 3rd in the NFL with 31.5 points per game in 2018.
