Tiger Family please help welcome our new OC @CoachMCanada! His ability to adapt to personnel and score points will be great for The Tigers!— Coach Ed Orgeron (@Coach_EdOrgeron) December 14, 2016
Canada was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Pittsburgh for the 2016 season. Previously, he was the offensive coordinator at North Carolina State University.
“Coach O and Joe have been very clear about what they expect,” said Canada. “With the talent already here and what we will recruit, we can put together one of the best offenses in the country. We’re going to develop quarterbacks, score points and bring some excitement to the offense here at LSU. And of course, we’re going to do it the right way - the LSU way.”
There is a press conference set for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday where Canada will be introduced. WBRZ will stream it live on our Facebook page.
