LSU had a productive day of meetings with Pitt's Matt Canada and is closing in on a deal to make him the Tigers' new offensive coordinator, a source told FOX Sports Tuesday. Word is LSU was impressed with how innovative Canada is and also came away feeling like he'd be a good fit for the staff.

Canada was the only offensive coordinator to make the finalists cut this year for the Broyles Award honoring the nation's top assistant coach. The Panthers have compiled the highest season point total in school history (508). With a bowl game to go, the Panthers are averaging 42.3 points per game (10th in FBS), which would eclipse the all-time Pitt record of 40.7 set in 1904. The Panthers also improved their scoring output by more than 14 points per game from last year. Pitt is the only Power 5 team in the nation to score at least 28 points in every game this season.

I wish LSU would be discreet with these meetings. Don't announce anything unless it's at a press conference introducing the new offensive coordinator and special teams coach.

I seriously doubt LSU is being indiscreet. The media prints what they want to and are not held accountable. Don't believe anyone other than LSU at an official press conference. The media is garbage and prints mostly lies and people gobble it up. Have to read between the lines.

The is the same verbiage the media widely used vis-a-vis Herman -- LSU was "closing in" on him, too. Hate to be so skeptical, but after all the recent sure bets gone awry, I'll believe it when I see it.

No point of reporting until papers are signed.

not believing anything until a contract is signed, we were "closing in on" Herman too
