Pitt’s Matt Canada hired to be LSU’s new O-coordinator

LSU has ended weeks of speculation by hiring Matt Canada to be the Tigers’ next offensive coordinator.

Lane Kiffin’s name had been connected to the job recently, but the Alabama offensive coordinator took the Florida Atlantic head coach position.

“When I first sat down with (athletic director) Joe Alleva and we mapped out a plan for LSU football, we agreed that we were going to demand excellence on both sides of the ball,” Orgeron said in a statement. “We want a defense that’s impenetrable and an offense that’s exciting and unstoppable. Anyone who wants to play football at the highest levels is going to want to play at LSU.”
