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