Brady needs to strike while the iron is hot and leave LSU. He may come down a few pegs once his QB leaves town. LSU won’t even come close to replicating their success on offense next season.
It probably stems from the fact that rhule has made it well known he's more of an nfl guy and was interested in making the jump back in a larger capacity. If mullen did the same would we see the same thing? Tough to tell, but rhule seems like a pretty darn good HC and has a bit of NFL experience and was thought highly of during that time. To me the interest makes sense.
