LSU and Matt Canada officially agree to part ways
The divorce is complete.
LSU and OC Matt Canada have officially reached an agreement to “mutually” separate. According to The Advocate, Canada will be paid $1.7M of the total $3.3M his contract buyout would owe him.
“I want to thank Matt for his contribution here at LSU and wish him and his family the best … 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 … I chose to go in a different direction in order to get where I believe we need to be as a program,” said Ed Orgeron in an official statement released from the school.
Who will replace Canada is still up in the air; however, Steve Ensminger remains a possibility although it will be not a popular option among the fan base. Canada and Orgeron have been rumored to have personality issues, but it does not matter anymore. Canada will depart after just one season.
