BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

Matt Canada will be the next offensive coordinator for the LSU Tigers, according to a statement released by the LSU Athletic Department.

Canada held the top offensive job at the University of Pittsburgh.

At Pitt, Canada’s 2016 offense scored 76 points in a win over Syracuse to cap the regular season and the Panthers also beat Big 10 champion Penn State, 42-39, and topped second-ranked Clemson, 43-42.

Pitt is the only Power 5 team in the nation to score at least 28 points in every game this year.

The Panthers recorded an 8-4 mark in 2016 and will play in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 28 against Northwestern in Yankee Stadium.

While at North Carolina State, Canada helped the Wolfpack to back-to-back bowl games in 2014 and 2015.

In 2015, the NC State finished third in the ACC in scoring with 33.5 points a game.

Prior to joining the NC State staff, Canada was at Wisconsin where they won the 2012 Big Ten championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.
