On Sunday, US time, the Panthers officially announced the firing of offensive coordinator Joe Brady. Coach Matt Rhule said in a statement that he had interviewed Brady on Sunday morning.
“I am very grateful to him for the time and energy he has invested in building the team in the past year and a half.” Lu said.
Senior offensive assistant Jeff Nixon (Jeff Nixon) will serve as offensive coordinator for the rest of the season. The Panthers have a bye this week and are currently averaging 308.7 yards per game this season, ranking 28th in the league and 23rd in the league in scoring 19.7.
Lu once said in October that he would continue to let Brady be the offensive coordinator, but hoped that he would work harder in rushing the ball. But Brady ultimately failed to satisfy Lu’s desire to rush the ball at least 30 times per game.
The Panthers started the season 3-0, but only 2 wins since then, with a current record of 5-7. Head running back Christian McCaffrey (Christian McCaffrey) has been reimbursed for the season, and the starting quarterback has also changed three.
