LSU on the verge of hiring new offensive coordinator

Posted: Updated:

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada is unlikely to return to the Tigers in 2018, NOLA.com and The Advocate reported Wednesday.

“Officials at LSU have been in discussion with Canada's representatives on a potential settlement for a split with the coach,” Ross Dellenger writes in The Advocate, citing multiple sources. He adds that tight ends coach Steve Ensminger could be Canada’s replacement. Ensminger has been an LSU assistant since 2010.

Canada joined LSU before the 2017 season. He spent the season before that as the offensive coordinator at Pitt, where he guided one of the most improved offenses in the country. Canada’s smart scheming was a huge reason that the Panthers were the only team in 2016 to beat eventual national champion Clemson.

Liking what he saw, LSU coach Ed Orgeron hired Canada in Baton Rouge. The Tigers paid Canada $1.5 million this year, making him the fourth-highest-paid assistant in the country and the highest-paid offensive coordinator, per USA Today. He’s on a three-year contract, which reportedly includes salary offsets if he takes another job.
