Update:
FootballScoop.com, who originally reported that LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada was seeking an interview for the head coaching position at Rice Unversity has now said that "Matt Canada no longer plans to interview for this one (Rice)."

Original:
Candidates for the head coaching job at Rice University could include current LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada, according to Scott Roussel with FootballScoop.com.

Roussel reports that Canada is seeking an interview with the University as they look for a replacement for David Bailiff who is no longer with the program.
quote:

Sources have told us both Stanford coordinators (Mike Bloomgren and Lance Anderson) have a good shot at the job. We are also told LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada is seeking an interview.

Bruce Feldman tweeted both Stanford coordinators and South Carolina offensive coordinator (and former Owl) Kurt Roper as potential candidates as well.
Canada just wrapped up his first regular season as offensive coordinator with LSU. Head coach Ed Orgeron said during his Texas A&M postgame press conference that he wouldn't be surprised if Canada were to pursue head coaching opportunities now that the regular season is over.

We need to quit hating on Canada for seeking a head coaching job, when you coaches consistently get higher positions at other schools it makes it that much easier to replace. How do you think someone as difficult to work with as Saban has no problem replacing good assistants with good or better assistants.

All the uproar from yesterday over nothing. The media wins again. However, even if Canada stays another year, he will be striving for a HC position somewhere. So don’t be surprised when he does. It’s just advancing in his chosen profession. Can’t blame him for that. There are plenty of good coordinators out there who would love to come to LSU! I know I would!

Canada's antics are making me not want him anymore. If he doesn't want to be a Tiger, so much so that he's willing take half the pay, then I don't want his pissy arse.

Things are so bad with LSUs offense that their oc wants to run to a dumpster fire in rice. That's bad

CC TIGER you are so right about Coach O’s ego . He’s really starting to P’ss me off .. He should allow this guy to rebuild our offense and get rid of coach Grimes and get to work .

You could look at his history and tell he's a job hopper. I think that even if everything went perfectly for him this year, he would have stayed max 2 yrs. I don't feel like he really enhanced his resume with the output this year, but everyone has differing opinions. I agree that we should be hiring someone now.

Rice? Why go to such a loser program?

Gotta start somewhere. A stepping stone to a bigger gig down the road, if successful.

Does this guy stay anywhere for any length of time? wtf? Does he just stay for a short time then rely on speculation of what he could do...
user avatar

Seriously. WTF is wrong with this guy? I get the desire to be a head coach, but this would probably be a pay cut to take over a cess pool of a program. The problem is that even if he stays, the writing is on the wall that he won't be here long - certainly does not help offensive recruiting when they don't know who their coordinator will be.

As long as someone writes a bigger check, yes! That’s pretty much the way of the world.

O is going to hire Ensminger.

Lexman177 months
Did he tell you that?
user avatar
bapple77 months
Except that Ensminger said last year he didn’t want the OC job. That’s why I think most people are confused with his comment.
