Matt Canada Bounces Back, Lands At Maryland

Matt Canada didn’t spend much time on the open market before finding a new home.

Just weeks after the highly touted offensive coordinator’s tenure at LSU ended after one season in Baton Rouge, Canada has found a new home at Maryland.


Most have an aversion to being “the new guy,” but the 2016 Broyles Award finalist would appear to be unbothered by it — this being his seventh new gig in eight years.

Canada had significant success in back-to-back stops at Northern Illinois and Wisconsin, followed by three years of varying results at NC State. A year after flirting with Tennessee, Canada was let go by head coach Dave Doeren. 

He had a cup of coffee at Pitt before being tapped by Ed Orgeron as the guy who would finally solve the riddle of the forward pass at LSU — presumably. That relationship was over before it started, with shades of Jersey Shore’s Ronnie and Sammi Sweetheart near the end — allegedly.

And here we are.

Canada’s offensive philosophy is an ever-evolving one. “It’s about players, not the plays,” he says. He’s excelled in the spread. He’s had 3,000-yard passers and 1,000-yard rushers on the same team. He’s engineered a Wisconsin power attack behind Doak Walker Award winner Montee Ball.

Translation: he’s versatile. And Maryland has some weapons — especially at quarterback. 

Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill were both outstanding in 2017 prior to injury. Max Bortenschlager did an admirable job in extended relief. Of course, you can’t play three quarterbacks at once, so Canada’s perks are also his problems. But three options is better than no options.

Fear the Turtle. Maybe. Potentially.
