Brady served as Sean Payton’s offensive assistant for those two seasons, while Curry was a wide receivers coach in 2018 after serving as an offensive assistant in 2017.

Curry assisted in mentoring a number of quarterbacks after switching to the position of quarterback coach, including Derek Carr, Andy Dalton, Taysom Hill, and Jameis Winston. Curry managed three different starting quarterbacks (Hill, Trevor Siemian, and Ian Book) for the remainder of the 2021 season after Winston sustained an injury in the middle of the season. At year’s end, the Saints had a 9-8 record.

For the most of the 2022 season, Curry collaborated with Andy Dalton, enabling Dalton to record a career-high completion percentage of 66.7%.

In Virginia, Curry was a well-known two-sport player before he began coaching in the NFL. He played basketball and football collegiately at the University of North Carolina after being named an All-American in high school (1998–2001).

Curry later switched to wide receiver after being selected by the Oakland Raiders in the 2022 NFL Draft. Between 2002 and 2008, he amassed 2,347 yards and 13 touchdowns.

In 2014, Curry started working as an offensive assistant in the NFL with the 49ers of San Francisco.
