The Panthers could potentially lose offensive coordinator Joe Brady after just one year on the job after three teams requested to interview him for their vacant head coach positions. According to multiple reports, the Texans, Falcons and Chargers have requested to interview Brady for their head coach position.

The requests are merely a formality, because the NFL teams are not allowed to deny coordinators the opportunity to interview for a job that would be a promotion from the one they currently have* (i.e. - coordinator to head coach). It doesn’t mean that Brady will be offered a job or that he will take one if he’s offered, but if he’s already drawing interest from multiple teams it’s safe to say his time in Carolina will be short lived.

Under Brady’s leadership on offense, the Panthers had four players reach 1,000 yards from scrimmage** for the first time in franchise history, and the fifth time in the Super Bowl era, so it makes sense that he would be a hot name in the coaching search.

Stay tuned to CSR, where we’ll provide updates to this story as new information comes in.
