Matt Canada out as LSU offensive coordinator after one season

Matt Canada out as LSU offensive coordinator after one season

The Tigers and Canada mutually agreed to part ways, the school announced Friday night. "I chose to go in a different direction in order to get where I believe we need to be as a program". Canada will receive about $1.7 million of the $3.3 million that was left on his contract, according to a report by Ross Dellenger of The Advocate.

"We say this every year, I think the quarterback position next year though, developing someone at that point is as important as it's ever been", Worsham said.

Canada had run successful offenses at several previous stops, including one of the country's best attacks at Pittsburgh in 2016.

But there were reportedly differences between Orgeron and Canada nearly from the beginning, coming to a head during LSU's 24-21 upset loss to Troy.

Canada's modern motion offense was expected to bring big results, but ended up flat lining in big games.

"If you are going to hire Ed Orgeron to be your head coach and you are going to pay him less money, you gotta be willing to fork up more your coordinators", Worsham said.

LSU finished the season 9-4, culminating with a 21-17 loss to No. 14 Notre Dame at the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton's. "We have mutually agreed to part ways and go in a different direction offensively but are always grateful for the time and effort Matt made here at LSU". However, he said the offense did not measure up to the standards he has set for LSU. Orgeron did not immediately name a successor.

Ensminger maintained previous year that he was not interested in the job full-time.
